Let The Orange Conference 2012 Party Begin

The greatest thing for me at The Orange Conference is connecting with old friends and making new ones.  It fires me up connecting with youth workers/youth pastors that understand:

–  parents are the primary influence of a student’s life

–  students also need more non-parental committed adults who care, love and cheer them on in this complicated thing called:  life

–  how to reach this unchurch next generation of mid to late adolescents

This year’s Orange Conference theme is game changers.  So the conference will be filled with content and stories about defining moments that have transformed the way people do ministry.  Also Orange will be debuting some amazing and new resources for orange minded ministry leaders.  My personal favorite is the new book:  LEAD SMALL by Reggie Joiner and Tom Shefchunas.  LEAD SMALL offers up best practices for leading a Small Group, and provides encouragement for the everyday heroes who play a key role in implementing the Orange Strategy.

But if you will NOT be attending The Orange Conference this year…. don’t worry The Conference will be live and well documented all over the intra web.

I would highly recommend checking out these (Orange student pastor) bloggers.  They will be blogging live at The Orange Conference.
