Here are some highlights from last year's Orange Conference.

Last year's Orange Conference was totally amazing!  The line up of speakers and break out seminars can not be beat.  And what Orange brings to the table that many other conferences out there is that they see the spiritual development of students is actually a unified plan from children's ministry through college combined with partnering with parents.  How solid is that!  The only thing that would make the conference better is if you were there.  If you can at all swing it, I hope you join me and 5000 of my closest friends as we are inspired, equipped, and sent out for another year of great ministry!

I am continually thankful for the resource Orange is for me and for our church.  If you have never used Orange or they are not on your radar, their strategy for connecting the church and the family is head and shoulders above anything else out there.

If you went last year, what were some of your highlights?

As you think about how you will be trained this year and how you will train your staff, why don’t you consider joining me in Atlanta, GA this April for the Orange Conference. This is an entire conference designed to wrestle with the intentional partnership between the church and the family.  (Plus, I need a roommate)

If you use something else and/or something better, would you be willing to share.  We as youth workers continually need to be sharpened, so sharpen away.
