The other day, I posted my top 10 reasons for attending the Orange Conference. A couple of the reasons centered around meeting and connecting with others. The more experience I have in ministry, the more I get excited about this. I have realized I cannot do it alone, and I do not have all the answers. I need to meet up with others, hearing their ideas, learning from their experience, and sharing wisdom. This is one of my favorite things about the Orange Conference.
Ok, so this is not something special just for the Orange Conference, but the people you get to meet at this conference are there for much of the same reasons. This makes a huge difference. They are also there to learn how to do a better job at reaching the entire family for Christ. They are there to stop silo-ing their ministries and to begin working on the same thing at the same time.
Also, it is important for student ministers to know that there is usually a big party for all of us on the first or second night of Orange. We get together to share ideas, but we also have a ton of fun! A couple years ago, we went bowling. They’ve also did trampoline basketball. We’ve hung out at Dave and Busters. Seriously, it is a blast!
If you have been desiring a connection with others in family ministry, Orange is the place to go!
