ATLANTA, Sept. 21, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ — The Orange Conference, a world-class event for entire family ministry teams, will be held May 1-3, 2019, in Atlanta. Entering its 12th year, the conference is on track to gather over 8,000 key ministry influencers—senior, NextGen, student, children’s, and preschool leaders, along with volunteers—to learn how to have a greater impact on the faith and character of the next generation.
This year’s theme, “It’s Personal,” delves into the idea that there’s a reason some volunteers have a deeper commitment, some parents engage at a more practical level, some ministries make a greater impact, some churches have a wider influence, and some leaders leave a lasting mark. These things happen when they make it personal, so the event will focus on helping leaders change how their church sees its community, which will, in turn, change how the community see the church.
Ministry leaders come, and bring their teams, to hear innovative ideas, discover resources to help them do their jobs better, network with peers, spend time together, and have fun.
And with a series of main stage keynotes as well as over 100 breakouts based on specific ministry roles and topics, people will certainly hear the messages they need most.
While most information centers around family ministry, that is birth through high school, those who lead adults and marriage ministries will also find breakouts relevant to them. This is yet another reason that entire ministry teams come to The Orange Conference. There is something for just about everyone. Additionally, many in attendance may utilize Orange’s curriculum, but that is not a prerequisite, and groups who do not still return again and again due to the numerous benefits.
A diverse group of educators, pastors, and professional leaders will provide practical insights for helping leaders improve how they do ministry and grow as a leader. In fact, a few of the incredible speakers already announced for 2019 include: Bob Goff, Danielle Strickland, Doug Fields, Kara Powell, Carlos Whittaker, Sam Collier, Ryan Leak, Mike Foster, and Reggie Joiner.
