Thinking Orange

The last week of April, I’ll be attending the Orange conference in Atlanta, GA for the first time, along with our children’s pastor, youth pastor, and worship pastor.  Why is the entire pastoral staff team going to a conference about family ministry?

Because every life matters.

Because what we do in children’s ministry and youth ministry matters, and it’s worth everything we can put into it.

The Orange strategy is not new for us, but in 2013 we are focusing on this like never before.  We want to see the partnership between the home and the church be as strong as it can be.

Because we can’t afford to lose even one – that’s too high a price.

I’d love to see you at the conference in April – the kids and families are worth it.  And we need to learn as much as we can and do whatever it takes.

Because every life matters to God and to us.
