ABOUT

Orange is a division of The reThink Group, a nonprofit organization providing resources and training to help churches maximize their influence on the spiritual growth of the next generation. To “Think Orange” means that you believe that the Church and home can have a greater influence on the faith of kids and teens by working together, rather than separately. It’s the strategy introduced by Reggie Joiner and the Orange team that thousands of churches around the world have used to build and grow successful family ministries for almost two decades.

Every week, you’ll have the opportunity to sit in on conversations with ministry and life stage experts as they unpack insights, principles and strategies that will help you better lead yourself, your ministry, your church and your community. Each episode will feature one idea to explore that inspires, challenges and may even change the way you view and lead the next generation.

Listener questions will also be answered, ensuring that your voice is heard and your ministry issues are addressed. We want to provide you with great content that is tangible, practical and relevant to ministries of all shapes and sizes. We’ll start the dialogue that allows you to take action.

We’re giving you a seat at the table. Pull up a chair.

Dave Adamson

DAVE ADAMSON (HOST)

Much to the surprise of his high school English teacher, Dave Adamson made a living as a TV reporter on one of Australia’s top sports networks. But he turned his back on the high-paying world of sports media to become a professional Christian, moving to the US with his wife, Meg, and three daughters, Chelsea, Ella, and Jordyn. When he’s not working as a pastor at North Point Ministries in Atlanta, he’s usually making his family cross their arms, roll their eyes, and tap their feet while he takes “just one more quick photo” on family outings. You’ll also often find him up to his neck in “Jewish stuff” as he researches the cultural context of Jesus for his daily Instagram devotions.

ASHLEY BOHINC (HOST)

Ashley serves as the Director of Middle School Strategy at Orange. She has worked with students in public education, athletic and ministry settings for the last 12 years. Ashley is most passionate about resourcing the local church, communicating on stage, developing leaders, working with students and world missions. Additionally, she is the USA Director of Carry 117, a ministry in Ethiopia which focuses on orphan prevention and family preservation by empowering women. In her downtime, you’ll find her watching Friends, cheering on the Cleveland Cavaliers, traveling, reading, or on one of her Fairytale Friday Adventures.
