What is Orange?

For the fifth year in a row, thousands of leaders will gather in Atlanta to talk, not only about what they are learning, but what they feel compelled to do about it. These are leaders who dare to rethink and who are willing to move in radical ways to influence the next generation. Some have created unique churches. Some have sacrificed immensely to rescue those in crisis. Some have launched innovative ministries. Some have recently stepped out of their comfort zone, to start over. They are pastors, leaders, parents, educators, and innovators who have a burning passion for the faith of the next generation.
I happen to be one of those thinkers!
Orange is more than a conference it's more than just a movement. It's a way of life based on a belief that the family and the church can accomplish more together than either one of them can accomplish on their own.

Once again I have the honor of not only attending but I'll also be sharing in five workshops as well as some different fellowship options. Beginning Tuesday, April 26th my good friend and fellow infuse coach Sam Luce is flying into Nashville to drive over with me and my family to Atlanta. When I'm not speaking I'll be hanging out with Sam and others in the blogger's lounge.
Some of the sessions and workshops will be streamed. I hope you'll look for me If you are going. I'd love to connect and talk and dream with you about how we can effectively reach the next generation. I'm posting my schedule just in case you want to connect. Also you can download my workshop notes here as well. If you can't attend this year I hope you'll make plans to join the conversation at http://www.whatisorange.org/orangeleaders/ also feel free to download my sessions as well.
