A New Orange

So the Innovative minds at Orange have outdone themselves in 2011, and want to take time to give you a free glimpse into what the Orange Strategy is all about.  Introducing the  ORANGE TOUR WEBCAST.

This is the perfect opportunity to get answers about the Orange Strategy, and how it could work for you at your church.  You have the chance to experience the same training and equipping event that has benefited thousands of leaders across the country. I know as a long-time attender of the Orange Conferences, that I wish something like this would have existed a few years ago.  This webcast is great because you can now share the Orange Tour experience with all the other leaders in your church. Now, whether you re new to Orange or a seasoned veteran, you can hear from Reggie Joiner, Sue Miller and more as they unpack critical parts of the Orange Strategy.

Mark your calendar for February 15 and get your team ready to participate in the Orange Tour Webcast. It s an online event that will feature critical sessions from the national tour.

Orange has designed this event so you can assemble a team and watch as a group, or just participate on your own. And it s free.

SPEAKERS

REGGIE JOINER is the founder and CEO of Orange, a nonprofit organization providing resources and training to help churches maximize their influence on the spiritual growth of the next generation. Orange provides innovative curriculum, resources and training for leaders who work with preschoolers, children, families and students. They have partners throughout the United States and eight other countries. Orange is also the architect and primary sponsor of The Orange Conference and the Orange Tour which provide national training opportunities for senior pastors, church leaders, and ministry volunteers.

Reggie is also one of the founding pastors, along with Andy Stanley, of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia. In his role as the executive director of Family Ministry, Reggie developed the concepts of ministry for preschoolers, children, students, and married adults over the course of his 11 years with the church. During his time with North Point Ministries, Reggie created KidStuf, a weekly environment where kids bring their parents to learn about God, as well as Grow Up, an international conference to encourage and equip churches to create relevant, effective environments for children, families and teenagers.

Reggie is the co-author of  Seven Practices of Effective Ministries (Multnomah, with Lane Jones and Andy Stanley) and the author of  Think Orange: Imagine the Impact When Church and Family Collide(David C. Cook).  Think Orange encapsulates Joiner s philosophy and practice of family ministry, combining the strengths of family and church to capture the hearts and minds of the next generation.
