The Orange Tour Heads to New York City During 2012-2013 Season Learn to Lead Change and Lead Small
10/5/2012, 4:24 p.m.
Atlanta, Georgia (October 4, 2012) - Hundreds of regional church leaders will gather in New York City on Tuesday, October 30 for The Orange Tour, an exciting series of one-day events across the nation created to equip and inspire attendees. Reggie Joiner, Sue Miller and Carey Nieuwhof will focus on "Lead Change" and "Lead Small," discussing the idea that how one leads determines one's influence on the next generation. Attendees will be encouraged and instructed on these two key elements for effective family ministry. Thoughts and ideas from other ministry leaders will also be shared in breakouts designed to create dialog and further discussion on these two critical topics.
"Leading Change" is vital because change is not an option. The only option is how one responds to it. The Orange Tour will explore how to navigate change and make decisive adjustments to what one does for the sake of ending up where one wants to be. "Leading Small" is addressed because many churches are realizing that the most effective means to influence the faith of the next generation is through a small group strategy. The tour will unpack how to invest strategically in the lives of a few to help them build an authentic faith.
Designed to be an interactive gathering of church leaders from specific geographic regions, The Orange Tour's relaxed environment provides each leader with the chance to network with other leaders in their area. The relationships formed here can become an invaluable tool to help build stronger ministries. It's perfect for every member of a ministry team--preschool, children's, student ministry and senior pastors. Volunteers and other key leaders are also encouraged to attend because of the lower ticket price and team development. The speakers, the training, and the community provide an excellent environment for growth. This gathering is also a great opportunity to get ministry-specific questions answered from our Orange Leaders, Orange Coaches, and fellow ministry leaders who have the same or similar experiences.
Information shared through the tour stems from the Orange Strategy, a pioneering concept that believes parents, as partners with church leadership, create the most impacting center of influence for children and teenagers. "Thinking Orange" blends two vital, yet often unconnected worlds to reshape the current ministry model.
The Orange Tour NYC will take place at Calvary Baptist Church, 123 West 57th Street. Registration is $59 if registered two weeks prior to the event, after which the price increases to $69. The one-day training opportunity can either be considered a stand-alone event or as a precursor to The Orange Conference, the country's largest family ministry event, which will be held April 24-26, 2013, in Atlanta.
