As part of the CKN network, I get to speak to church leaders about the role of communications in their building projects. Through that relationship, I've met my new friend, Michael Trent. Michael owns Third Place Consulting - working with churches and others to create effective third place environments. He calls himself "the church bartender." I love that! And I wish I could get away with looking as cool as Michael looks...(hair spiky, not shaved...all that).
