So, next week is the Orange Conference. I can’t tell you how excited I am to get there. Things have been so busy and crazy, I’m just excited to get away. However, I do need a little help.
My boss, the Executive Pastor at Gateway is coming with me to Orange (Which I’m super stoked about) this year. He came to the Orange Tour in Dallas and has read Think Orange, so he gets the whole Orange strategy. This is the first time I’ve brought someone who isn’t on my kidmin or student ministry team, so I’m not sure what breakouts he should attend. I told him that I’d pick out his breakouts for him.
I’ve been told in the past that sometimes the senior pastor breakouts were great, but they weren’t necessarily focused as much on the Orange Strategy. I really want him to take in Orange, whether that means he attends breakouts for senior leaders or whatever.
So, do you have your boss attending Orange or have in the past? What breakouts would you recommend? Here’s the page/list of breakouts. Thanks for your help!

Kenny, Here are a few suggestions — although I know you will pick the best ones for what y’all need to focus on: I really like Terry Scalzitti “Casting Orange Vision to Parents” and “Lessons from Disney with Brian White. Brian spoke to our staff not to long ago and it was truly excellent stuff. I would also suggest “why they leave” with Jared Herd. Jeff Henderson’s pre con breakout “how to shift priorities” will likely be phenomenal as well. There are a lot of good ones to choose from. Pick ’em quick or the ones you want might reach capacity!
