The Orange Conference 2015 RECAP

If you weren’t able to attend OC15, or even tune into the Live Stream, here’s a peek at what happened when over 6,600 people decided to gather here in Atlanta and learn how to make the most of the phases that kids go through.

I think it went pretty well . . .

Watch The Orange Conference 2015 Live Stream

LiveStreamFB_01It’s here! It’s here! OC15 is this week! My company, Orange, hosts the largest family ministry event, The Orange Conference, and it’s all going down this week. We’ll be joined by almost 7,000 of our closest friends!

Not going to be here with us? No problem! You can still tune in to our Live Stream. We’ll be streaming a few of the main sessions, give away LOTS of prizes, conducting speaker and author interviews, and generally having a good time. So, you should make plans to hang out with us.

A couple pointers:

  • Check the Live Stream site for the schedule. BUT if you can only watch one thing, tune in Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. ET to hear our founder, Reggie Joiner. It’s going to be a great message! Plus, it’s the opening session so there will be lots of fun things happening.
  • Be sure to RSVP for additional perks and offers you won’t see anywhere else.
  • Get your game face on! You could win a variety of fantastic prizes just for watching—including a ticket to next year’s conference!

Hope you can make it!

After Orange Conference

It’s been a looooooooonnnnnng week since we just wrapped OC12. I’m pretty pooped, so it’s been nice to be on the couch all day.

In case you missed my constant posting on Twitter and Facebook about it, our staffed gathered with over 5,000 church and ministry leaders to rethink the way the traditional church approaches family ministry. We aim to better partner the church with the home to influence the faith of the next generation. For info, check out our website. We’re even offering free curriculum trials through June.

I am a little anxious to see the surveys, but we’ve already received a lot of great feedback via emails and social media from attendees who said they had a great time and feel better equipped to go back to their church and community in order to make a difference. It’s always encouraging, despite the exhaustion, and this year was particularly great because several of my friends pitched in to volunteer. So it was nice to see the familiar and encouraging faces–kept me going when I started slowing down.

We’ll have a lot more pics in the upcoming weeks on the Orange Leaders Facebook page from the professional photographers, but here are just a few I took with my phone.

Ok, time to get a little sleep and then begin working on OC13!
