Rethink Leadership is an event for senior leaders in the church that’s designed by senior leaders. Carey Nieuwhof helped create the event, along with the team at Orange, and it runs alongside The Orange Conference. The fact that Carey Nieuwhof is behind it is all you really need to know, but with that said, here are 4 reasons why every executive leader should attend Rethink Leadership.
Rethink Leadership is Designed with Senior Leaders in Mind
The entire conference is designed with senior leaders in mind. Meaning, the content will be focused on what senior leaders care about most as it relates to leading their church. Many conferences are specific to a niche within the church, a specific ministry area, or leadership in general, but Rethink Leadership is specific to what lead pastors, executive pastors, and campus pastors care about most.
Rethink Leadership has a Different Feel
As a NextGen Pastor, my favorite conference experience each year is NEXT, a small event that Orange hosts specifically for NextGen Pastors. The fact that it’s small and specific to my role is what I love about it. Rethink Leadership is the same thing, but for senior leaders. I get to connect with so many people at the event and that includes the speakers. Rethink Leadership offers the same community and access.
Rethink Leadership has a Unique Format
Rethink Leadership is different in its format. The talks are TED Talk-style (short)or interviews with Q&A time afterward. You sit around tables with your peers which allows you to learn from them as you learn from presenters. In my experience, I learn even more from my peers than I have from presenters, mostly because my peers are in a context that’s usually more similar to mine.
Rethink Leadership gives you Orange Conference Access
Rethink Leadership is designed to run parallel to the Orange Conference so leaders can attend the main sessions of the Orange Conference when they are not in Rethink Leadership. This allows for a church staff to experience some elements together while also getting content and opportunities that unique to their role. It’s the best of both worlds, for sure.
