If you have never been to a conference like this, then you probably don’t understand this. However, if you have been to Orange or other, similar events, then you know that trying to take it all in simply is impossible. Imagine someone wrapping your mouth around a water hose and then having someone turn it on. That is kinda what this is like intellectually. That is totally where I am: INFORMATION OVERLOAD.
If you are a children’s or youth leader, then you will also understand this, I LOVE MINISTRY. I am super passionate about helping children come to know Christ and grow in their relationship with him. So, to take 3 – 4 days fully focused on doing an even better job with this is like a dream. To take 3 – 4 sitting with other people who are at least as passionate as I am about this and, in most cases, better at it is like a dream.
But, it can be a lot to take in.
For this reason you may have noticed that I have not posted much (any) this week. Trust me, in the coming weeks I will make up for it. In the mean time you can find all of my notes from the conference HERE. I hope the notes are helpful. If there is anything in the notes that you have questions about please feel free to ask me. I’d love to talk more about any of these topics. Over the course of the next few weeks I will take some time to unpack these notes, to expound on them some, and to give some of my own thoughts on the topics.
If you were unable to make it to the Orange Conference then I hope you find these notes, and the future posts helpful. I would also encourage you to seriously consider coming next year. The tickets are on sale now and at the lowest price they will be. You can check out the pricing for next years conference HERE. If you decide to come, be sure to let me know. I would love to meet in person, it’s one of my favorite things about attending conferences.Matt Norman
