<? echo $type; ?> Preconference—You’ve Never had a Workshop Experience Like This

Imagine a day that’s designed to give you the purposeful connections you’re looking for—with people who do what you do, people who you can learn from and who can learn from you.

Imagine hanging out with them all day as you attend workshops together—getting answers, new ideas and inspiration.

Imagine feeling like you’re not alone.

That’s what this year’s Orange Conference Preconference is all about.

  • Start your day in large groups with your Tribe to learn about six concepts we think will be invaluable to your ministry. From there, we’ll break up into smaller, more focused groups that dive deeper into the topics that matter most to you.
  • We’ll give you a common language and workshop experiences designed to bring you closer and establish a strong foundation for your team and new friendships.
  • Bring your questions and get them answered by ministry experts and practitioners. The smaller audience sizes at Preconference allow you access to your favorite ministry leaders.

At this year’s Preconference, you’ll hear from leaders such as Ron Edmondson, Sue Miller, Doug Fields, Jim Wideman, Geoff Surratt, Craig Jutila, Cary Nieuwhof, Nina Schmidgall, Ted Lowe, Elle Campbell, Kenny Conley, Brooklyn Lindsey, Meaghan Wall, Katie Garvert, and many others.

And if you’re new to Orange, you might want to consider Orange Interactives. These are designed for those who have never used our curriculum before or have been using it less than two years. These special two-hour workshops are strategy and curriculum specific, and include training on items such as Large Group experience, Small Group experience, worship and small church ministry adaptation. We’ll have four Orange Interactives to choose from: Preschool, Children, Students and Family Experience (FX).

Registration for Orange Interactives is included with your Preconference registration. But if you can’t attend the Preconference, you can register for Orange Interactives at a reduced rate. Please visit the website for more info.
