The Orange Conference is going to look a lot different this year. Not only will the main sessions be online, many of the workshops will also be online. And on top of that, they will have a huge amount of workshops available after the conference for an entire year. All of this will change how we, the blogging team, are covering the event.
So, here is what you can expect from me this year:
- Regular tweets with quotes and major points speakers make. Follow me on Twitter @stevecullum and follow the hashtag #OC20.
- At least one blog post a day focused on the main sessions. Depending on how these go, I may write more than one. But there will be at least one.
- Summaries, highlights, and notes from the breakouts I attend on Thursday and Friday. Speaking of which, here are the ones I’m attending:
- Re-Evaluating Your High School Ministry
- When to Split Middle School and High School: Best Practices
- How Community Can Thrive in Crisis
- Responding to Students with Anxiety and Depression
- Increasing Your Influence and Effectiveness in Youth Ministry
- One Question That Can Make Every Event Better
- Contextualizing Youth Curriculum for an Increasingly Diverse Audience
- Regular blog posts over the next year based on additional workshops I watch from their on-demand catalog.
- A post-OC podcast with a few others from the Orange blogging team.
Even though OC will look very different this year, I’m still incredibly excited to learn more from some incredibly talented and wise leaders. The theme could not be more fitting too!
Let me know in the comments if there is anything else you want me to cover this year.
