It Energized Me.  No, I’m not talking about the free Land of a Thousand Hills coffee, though I really did love their coffee and it certainly gets honorable mention in my top ten list.  And anyone who has been to Orange Conference knows that I’m not talking about all the sleep I got while I was there between the late nights networking and the early morning breakfasts.  But something about being around all of those like-minded people, being inspired to move, and spending time with my dad/senior pastor brought me home energized and ready to do ministry.

By now, a lot of the post-conference excitement has worn down, but when I think back on the experience I still find myself excited about what we’re doing and inspired to implement some new ideas.

If you’re looking for an energizing experience for yourself, other staff members, and your church, consider registering for Orange Conference 2012.  The best rates are today, September 22 and there are extra goodies for registering on opening day.  Also, I am giving away a free ticket right here on Small Town Kidmin.

This post is part of Think Orange Week 2012.
