TThe time of conference is over and we return back to our homes to be ‘FOR’ our Neighbors. It was an amazing few days where the worship lifted up praise to Jesus and the speakers gave challenges and words for all of us to think and respond to.
Do you care… about yourself? Often times we as leaders become what Mike Foster (@mikefoster) calls
Today was a day of learning called You-Lead. I have always loved what was known as a pre-conference and this is where you can really get some solid and challenging information.
I’m dreaming Orange dreams right now. Why Orange? Well, because God blessed me with an opportunity to join in with 7,000 leaders who serve the body of Christ in many different ways, we have Senior leaders, executive pastors, campus pastors, next generation/family pastors, high school, middle school and children’s (elementary, preschool) leaders from all over the country. Why do they gather in Atlanta for a few days? Because they believe that this next generation is vital to turning around our world. They believe that reaching ones neighborhood is vital to so many parts of our everyday life. This week, will be filled with worship, learning, networking, challenging our thinking and pushing our hearts to places that only God knows we need to be pushed to. I’m excited to serve as part of the blogging team and you can find a great group of writers all of them better than myself, to share what we are experiencing. You can find the list at www.orangeleaders.com you can follow on twitter #OC17 and there is a livestream you can follow too!
I’ve heard this said too many time recently in many kidmin forums and Facebook groups. It breaks my heart to hear of so many of my peers wrestling with whether or not they can or even should take a sabbath. Many feel there’s no time and its an even more real struggle for those who are bi-vocational or part-time leaders.

I had the great privilege to be a part of a launch team for a fantastic new book called, “Divine Direction, 7 decisions that will change your life.” by Craig Groeschel. I received and an advanced copy of his book in exchange for an honest review.
