Orange Tour: Dallas from Andrew Winchell on Vimeo.

Don’t know if you heard, but I attended the Orange Tour event in Dallas last Thursday. 🙂

It was incredible. Supposedly there were over 700 attendees. Seriously, would you expect any less of Texas. I’m just wondering when ReThink will come to their senses and just go ahead and do the Orange Conference out here. How’s that for a suggestion? 🙂

I’m not going to post a lot of my notes or anything. However, here is how I’ll describe the Orange Tour. It’s focused! It’s something that you can bring your entire team (and more) to that gets straight at the heart of the matter. The Orange Conference is incredible due to the variety of sources of information and the creativity and breath of knowledge, it’s a no-miss event. However, the Orange Tour focuses on the strategy specifically. Not sure you can get your pastor or some key leaders to the Orange Conference, then go to the Orange Conference with your team and take this key leader or your pastor to an Orange Tour event. You’ll get more mileage that way. However, the Orange Tour isn’t a substitute for the conference. It’s like comparing apples to oranges… or maybe smaller oranges with bigger oranges.

The thing I loved the most about the Orange Tour was how candid Reggie and Sue were. There were several point while listening to both of them that you could see their passion and heart bleeding for the cause of reaching families. Simply powerful, so motivating and encouraging. They’re not pushing a product (well, the do have a product, but that’s not what this was about). They were igniting a movement toward a new way of thinking.
