ORANGE WEEK: The Orange Tour

1288371871_0I’ve been going to the Orange Conference for 3 years now and I’ve loved every moment of it.  The only problem with the Conference is that it happens only once a year!  However, for quiet a few years now, Orange has been doing regional tour stops throughout the year.  They called it the Orange Tour.

At the Orange Conference there are 3 days of seminars and workshops where you can get overloaded on information.  If you’ve been there (or been to any conference for that matter, you know what I mean).  So what Orange does with these Tour Stops are to take a few of those ideas and develop them deeper during the course of the day.

The typical Orange Tour Stop day runs from 8:45 am (check-in) til 4:30 pm.  It’s great for a variety of other reasons:

  1. It’s affordably priced.  As with any conference, you aren’t just paying for the conference, but you are paying for food, travel, hotels, etc.  But with a tour stop, you are paying for a day of training and lunch.  That’s it.
  2. More members of your team can come!  With the lower cost of admission and elimination of travel costs, more of your team can come experience what Orange is all about it.
  3. Great speakers and discussion.  Even though the Tour is condensed, Orange still brings a great group of speakers and leaders with them to lead that time.  So, you don’t have to go to the conference to get to hear from Reggie and other great Orange Leaders.
  4. Meet other regional Church/Ministry leaders.  Last year when I went to the Orange Tour Stop in DC, I got to connect with a few other church leaders that I had never met.  It was a great way to network, connect and share experiences with them.

So if you are looking to get some first hand exposure to Orange, check out their Tour Stop Schedule and sign up quick.  You can save money, have more of your ministry leaders go and meet some great people from your own area along the way.  You won’t regret it.
