Orange Conference 2020

Orange Conference 2020 Status

The past few weeks have been an unprecedented time in ministry. We are all asking the same question:

HOW CAN WE HELP?

At a time like this, it’s easy to buy into the myth that what we do is inconsequential in this global concern, or that ministry is somehow on hold.

But the truth is what you do this week matters more than ever. How the Church responds in this moment will significantly impact the way this generation sees God.

As a non-profit organization whose mission is to support churches in their work of discipling kids and teenagers, we are actively re-imagining how to best help you as you help those in your community. To that end, we have set up FREE solutions for digital services on OrangeKidMin.com and OrangeStudents.com so you can stay personally connected every week with strategic experiences.

Like you, we are also looking at the weeks and months ahead and re-imagining solutions for significant moments like Easter and VBS.

Another one of our favorite significant moments of the year happens at Orange Conference, when we have an opportunity to be together in the same room with leaders like you. We recognize that in our current reality it would be unwise to move forward as planned.

One year ago, we started planning Orange Conference for April 29-May 1 with the theme, “Every Generation Needs a New Revolution.” We knew this would be a year we talk about CHANGE. Now it seems the revolution started a little earlier than we planned!

We are still going to have Orange Conference — just in a different way.

We will host three real-time livestream sessions on the same dates, April 29-May 1 with leaders we love to hear including Simon Sinek, Danielle Strickland, Andy Stanley, Jon Acuff, Ryan Leak, Dharius Daniels, Mark Batterson, Kristen Ivy, Joel Manby, Nona Jones, Jimmy Mellado and more. And you can expect some surprises (seriously!) and as much fun and energy as we can squeeze through your Internet connection.

We recognize that we cannot re-create what happens when thousands of us are together in the same room. But we do believe there are some opportunities for even more

In the past, we’ve been limited by the number of seats at the arena, and you have been limited by travel costs. In this new format, we can include as many people as the Internet can handle (a lot more).

So, we want YOU to invite a friend. For free.

For every ticket you’ve purchased, we’ll give you a second pass free so you can invite a friend.

We’re calling this new time together:

Orange Conference Live: A Digital Experience

It’s easy to feel isolated right now. We want to bring as many people together as possible, to share an experience that will ultimately impact the next generation.

We are here for you and with you.
Thank you for all that you do every week.

Reggie Joiner
Founder and CEO of Orange

Great news! We’re offering free shipping on OC 20 Live products. Use code SHIPOC2ME at checkout. *Coupon valid from April 29-May 1st. Products outside of the Orange Conference 2020 category are excluded from this offer.

The OC Live “main-stage” content is just that… broadcast LIVE! And while some elements may be posted in some places after the event, we encourage you to watch the livestream as it’s being broadcast if at all possible. That said, if you’re an international attendee where viewing live is prohibitive, you should receive information about how you can watch a “rebroadcast” of OC Live at a time that is more convenient.

 

TIP: The OC Video Library with 50+ on-demand breakouts is available for A FULL YEAR after the event.

This new Labs experience, originally scheduled for April 29, will be transformed into an interactive, master class experience in the months following Orange Conference. If you signed up for an Orange Lab, we’ll communicate details to you soon!

In addition, we’re freezing the price at $329 for new registrants. Of course, if you signed up early, you got an even better deal.

We’re working over and above to make sure you get the full value and more for your investment in Orange Conference.

This is a bit of an honor system but our intention is that one ticket covers one seat. To add even more value, we’re encouraging everyone who purchased a ticket to invite someone else to the experience. We are sending you two access codes—one for you and one for a friend. (Congratulations, you are officially an influencer.)

We’re planning to be back with you in person April 28-30, 2021. Tickets go on sale May 1st with our best price ever at theorangeconference.com.

You can purchase tickets through end of day on Thursday, April 30th, and your ticket will include our OC Live Video Library.

Absolutely! In fact, we recommend you login ahead of time to browse around. That way you’ll be familiar with the site once we start streaming!

We’re using Zoom (ever heard of it?) for our Q&A sessions, which is great because it lets you interact directly with our breakouts speakers in two ways:

 

CHAT: Send a quick message that EVERYONE (your breakout speaker and all the attendees in your breakout) can see and respond to.

 

Q&A: Send a specific question to the SPEAKER. Because of the lmited time, we may not get to all questions during these sessions, but we’ll do our best to make sure your submission is addressed!

Don’t worry–Zoom is completely free and easy to use! Visit Zoom.us to log in or to create a new account. All you’ll need is an email address, Google account, or Facebook account.

We generally recommend at least 4-5 megabytes per second (mbps) of connection speed to stream the conference with minimal interferance. To check your current speed, you can go to SpeedTest.net.

 

If things get buggy, remember you’ll have access to the OC Live Video Library all year long..
