If you aren’t going to be on-site at the event, you might want to tune into the live stream, starting at 6:30 p.m. Eastern TONIGHT. You’ll be able to see the opening session this evening, which is always full of good music and great speakers, including Reggie Joiner, Orange’s founder. You can also see the full live stream schedule there on the site. It’s going to be a great couple of days. Tell the church leaders and volunteers in your life.
I’ll be there in person again, but hope you can join us virtually!
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.

When you “Say YES to the Next Generation,” this year’s theme, it means you say yes to tension, collaboration and debate. There are important questions church leaders wrestle with every week. In fact, many of the questions in ministry are tricky to navigate. This year’s Orange Tour will help attendees discover the best way to answer these questions.
Tour stops for 2014 include Atlanta, Ga., Minneapolis, Minn., Seattle, Wash., Windomar, Calif., Lancaster, Penn., Washington D.C., Detroit, Mich., Indianapolis, Ind., Kansas City, Kan., Charlotte, N.C., Austin, Texas, Dallas, Texas, and Tampa, Fla.
Over 6,000 of you will be joining us in Atlanta next week! And while we’d love for everyone reading this to be here in person, we realize that’s not always possible. So, we’d like to offer you the next best thing: tune in online! FOR FREE! You’ll be able to see on- and off-stage action, including session streaming, speaker interviews, mayhem and hi-jinx, resource updates and giveaways—and maybe even win a ticket to OC15!
Be sure to RSVP for the Live Stream to receive additional information and special offers. We will not spam you, or sell your info. That’s just rude.
And don’t forget to invite your friends to watch with you!
A full Live Stream schedule will be posted just prior to the conference on this blog.
And if you’re super excited about the Live Stream, but tend to get a little distracted, text “LIVE” to 404-445-2198. We’ll send you text updates about what’s happening, reminders and important info. But we promise not to message you like a sixth grade girl at a One Direction concert.
The Orange Conference, a conference for entire family ministry teams, will be held April 30–May 2, 2014, in Atlanta. Over 5,000 key influencers—senior, next gen, student, children’s and preschool leaders—will gather to experience the power of “Yes,” and learn new insights into influencing the faith and character of the next generation.
