One of the highlights of my year is the Orange Conference. This is my 6th year in a row to be a part of this wonderful event. I had planed on coming to the 1st one in 2007 but I was in the middle of a ministry change. Each one has put something in me that needed to be there. One of the reasons I love The Orange Conference is that it's 5 conferences in one. There's something for #kidmin folks, #stumin people, college ministry, #fammin or next gen pastors and Senior Pastors as well. This year's theme is Focus, if there is one thing the church and the family both need to do is focus like never before on the time each of us have left with our kids. What you do this week matters. Today I got to teach about "Leading You." Self management takes incredible focus. In this talk I taught about focusing on the 5 H's. Our heart, our homes, our health, our head and our hours. Your walk with God, your relationship with your family, your health, your thinking, and your time.
Focus is needed to be able to lead you. I have 3 other breakouts during the conference. Would you like to have my notes? You can download them here. If you are at Orange and you see me please stop me and introduce yourself. Thursday at 4:55PM I'll be doing a book signing over at the main Orange store. Please come by if you have any of my books with you. (You can also pick them up at either of the Orange Store.
I am so honored to be a part of this wonderful event I am asking God where have I lost focus? I'm also asking Him if I have been focusing on the wrong stuff? Lord, what needs more focus in my personal life? What needs focus in my family? What needs focus in my ministry? These are important questions!
How about you? Where do you need focus?
