ATLANTA, May 22, 2014 /Christian Newswire — Orange Tour 2014 will help church leaders create a culture of collaboration as they fight for the tensions that will make their message stronger and their strategy more effective. Taking place in 13 cities across the U.S. this fall, the unique format and regional aspect of Orange Tour allows for combined vision and strategy with specific best practices.
When you “Say YES to the Next Generation,” this year’s theme, it means you say yes to tension, collaboration and debate. There are important questions church leaders wrestle with every week. In fact, many of the questions in ministry are tricky to navigate. This year’s Orange Tour will help attendees discover the best way to answer these questions.
Main sessions will give attendees an opportunity to learn alongside their team, and think through over-arching thoughts and ideas that are relevant to ministry and the local church. Workshops allow team members to dive deeper into subject matter that relates directly to their role or interest. Orange Tour is also a great way to get every leader on the same page. Our speakers will share their insight and experience into the challenges that church leaders face every week. A few of the speakers on this year’s tour will include Jon Acuff, Reggie Joiner, Sue Miller, Kristen Ivy, Carey Nieuwhof, Jim Wideman, Amy Fenton Lee, Brooklyn Lindsey, Joseph Sojourner, Kevin Ragsdale, Ben Crawshaw, Kenny Conley, Adam Duckworth, Kendra Fleming, Terry Scalzitti, Tom Shefchunas and more.
A small group leader training event will be held the night before the all-day event. It will be free to everyone with an Orange Tour ticket, and will help small group leaders discover best practices to help them intentionally partner with the parents of the kids they lead. Those without Orange Tour tickets may still attend for $19.
Tour stops for 2014 include Atlanta, Ga., Minneapolis, Minn., Seattle, Wash., Windomar, Calif., Lancaster, Penn., Washington D.C., Detroit, Mich., Indianapolis, Ind., Kansas City, Kan., Charlotte, N.C., Austin, Texas, Dallas, Texas, and Tampa, Fla.
Registration opens on Thursday, May 29, at $49, including lunch and the small group leader event. The price will increase as the events get closer. For more information about The Orange Tour, please visit www.OrangeTour.org.
