2021 Mbird Tyler Recordings: Refreshed!

David Zahl, Carrie Willard, Tim Blackmon, Leigh Hickman, and more!

Mockingbird / 5.13.21

We are so grateful to the folks in Tyler who organized such a wonderful, refreshing event, particularly the marvelous steering committee and its chair, Matt Magill. The music, movies, food, and speakers did not disappoint!

We’d also like to thank all the sponsors that helped make the conference happen: Smithy Web Services, Hager Law, Living Well Counseling, KnackForge Technology, Chick-fil-A, Atlas Automotive, East Texas Pool Service, Kyser Musical Products, True Vine Brewing Company, M6 Winery, Hilltop Concrete, The Foundry Coffee House, Brands and Threads Apparel Co, and B3 Ministries.  And a special thanks is owed to Mark Babikow for his inestimable A/V help and expertise, as well as Casey and Travis Squyres from Stellate Photography (who took some gorgeous photos of the conference)!

As always, we’re making the recordings available for everyone. Please do consider chipping in to help cover the cost of the event.
