I’m Coming To Orange 2012!

If you aren’t aware of Orange, I invite you to check out this dynamic organization.

Along with curriculum, training, and resources for your church they organize events across the country to equip leaders impacting our next generation.

One such event is the annual Orange Conference here in Atlanta.

The Orange Conference is opportunity for all areas of ministry to get together to strategically align their vision, refocus their understanding, and redefine the way they ‘play the game’.

From the pastoral staff, to the children’s and student ministries, to the adult and women’s areas… the Orange strategy aims to synchronize all areas together to show the next generation that there is a God who unconditionally loves them.

The Orange Conference 2012 will be a gathering of leaders called to understand the changes influencing this new generation — our kids, our mentees, our students.

You’re probably saying to yourself: “Dustin, you aren’t in ministry, right?”

Right.

But… I have a family. I serve at church. I blog about faith and fatherhood.

All those things tie into the singular vision of wanting to align myself with the vision of those in my community.

With that being said, I’m excited to announce that I am going to blog for the Orange Conference in April. If you happen to be in the area, let me know!

As part of this opportunity, I’m excited to be able to give away one of two books: Think Orange (by Reggie Joiner) or Parenting Beyond Your Capacity (by Reggie Joiner & Carey Nieuwhof).

    Love that you are doing that dustin. If I was to travel to a conference this year, because of my situation, i would like to travel to theSticks again. It was a good refresher for me.

    Congratulations on going to the Conference.

    I am not much of a conference goer, but one that would interest both my wife and I is The Southeast Great Homeschool Convention in March. We homeschool and there would be some intersting topics there…so eh…if possible I would go.

    Congrats on the blogging opportunity, Dustin. Hope you have a blast and that it opens up more doors for you to do the work you love.

    I really want to go to the Quitter Conference because I really want to be a quitter.
