Get ready—Orange Tour hits the road this week! We’ll be gathering with approximately 10,000 church leaders across the country over the next three months to discuss family ministry and partnering with parents to influence the faith of the next generation.

 

SAY YES TO THE NEXT GENERATION

When you say yes to the next generation, it means you…

Say yes to tension.

Say yes to collaboration.

Say yes to debate.

 

It means you say yes to wrestling with questions like…

Should secular leaders influence your ministry strategy?

Is your ministry really pro-family?

Does your church make kids and teenagers feel like they have a place to belong?

Are you losing or gaining momentum in your community?

Should you teach kids the Bible or help them develop character?

Is the culture of your ministry attracting the right kind of volunteers and leaders?

 

How you answer these questions matters.

It matters for the momentum of your ministry.

It matters for the effectiveness of your strategy.

It mattters for the faith of the next generation.

But just because the questions matter doesn’t mean the answers are simple. In fact, many of the questions you face in ministry are tricky to navigate. Sometimes there are truths that seem to contradict each other. Sometimes two people with the same goal don’t always agree. Sometimes there’s tension.

So every week you have to decide. You can make a statement or manage an ongoing conversation. You can take a side or fight for the tension.

Join us at this year’s Orange Tour and discover the best way to answer these questions.
