OC15- Phases! Read to Win!


I’m so looking forward to OC15 for many reasons!

* I’m bringing my new lead pastor and I can’t wait for him to experience the Conference and connect with other Senior Leaders during their track!  If you have want to gain major momentum consider inviting your lead to join you. Offer to pay their way and show them the opportunity to connect with the likes of Reggie Joiner, Carey Nieuwhof, and others in their own special track.

* I’m looking forward to OC15 to connect with other leaders who are passionate about doing the best children’s ministry, family, ministry, preschool ministry and learn from each other.

* I’m looking forward to OC15 to spend some time in Worship! Every year the worship times have been so amazing to me. I love hearing 6,000 voices lifted in worship of the King.

* I’m looking forward to OC15 to make some new connections and to be challenged to make the next Phase of our ministry one that brings even more to the kingdom.

  1. The thing I am most looking forward to is connecting with other leaders. Orange leaders, bloggers, tweeters, and pioneers in ministry are all walking around in one location! Tom, let’s eat a lunch or dinner together!

  2. I have to agree with Corey. The best thing about Orange is getting to spend time with other leaders. The conversations, sharing, hearing about a person’s passion, struggles, and challenges, and being able to pray with each other; they’re all worth the price of being there.

  3. I am looking forward to revitalization! God is doing incredible things with our church and children’s ministry. I seem to find fuel and continue to feel revitalized on a daily basis by witnessing His works and hearing praise reports. But I find it rare when I am with other CM leaders, and when I am, I always feel refueled and refreshed. I cannot wait for that!

    1. That is so great! I hope we can meet in person. I’ll be live blogging from the Bloggers lounge upstairs in the Arena. I hope you stop by and say hello! I too find such refreshment when I’m with God’s people.

  4. I’m looking forward to be able to share with my team the “Orange” vision. I’m also looking forward to the fun night where we can just have a good time. In addition, I’m looking forward to several of the breakout sessions. Last year, was my first time at the Orange Conference and I learned so much. I can’t wait to find out what I will learn and be able to implement for my ministry this year.
