While you in the local church may focus a lot of time and energy on your fall kickoff, we at Orange focus a lot of time and energy on The Orange Conference. It’s where we get to show you all the new things we’ve been working on to help you do ministry better. And we’ve got some exciting things for you this year!
Here’s a sneak peek:
by Kristen Ivy and Reggie Joiner

Phase Guides are designed to help parents make every week count.
