So, you are ready for a road trip to the ORANGE Conference 2010. Got your reservation? Got your breakouts? Got your comfy shoes? There is one thing I highly recommend you bring. Bring your expectations! Plan now for what you want to come away with. As you travel together- whether by plane, train, automobile or giant church van- – TALK. You are about to experience something together. You will get to know your team. You will laugh till your sides hurt. You will worship and fellowship with churches from all over the globe. How cool is that?
What do you want to walk away with ? Pinpoint with your team as you travel what some goals are. Gather all the info you can. PLAN for great things to happen within you and your team!
And after a long day at a conference I recommend you meet and recap. Have each team member share highlights of their takeaways from the day. Talk about all of them. Pray together. Laugh some more. And make a note about people you meet. Pray for them. Connect with them. The power of networking has never been so strong as today! Remember iron sharpens iron! And on the road home? Yep, recall it. Process information and filter through what God is calling your team to do in your local church.
Can you imagine the possibility for impact on kids/parents/volunteers/churches/leaders? Shout “road trip” and “amen” somebody!
