Editor’s note: Things have changed since this blog post was originally posted—namely, a global pandemic known as coronavirus. Because of that, the Orange Conference 2020 has shifted to an online conference format. That obviously has an impact on some of the content in this blog post. We just wanted to make sure you were aware!
If you’ve been to an Orange Conference before, you no doubt know all about breakouts. If 2020 is going to be your first year joining us, then you might just discover that breakouts are your favorite part of the conference experience.
After all, breakouts are where the real magic of OC happens. This is the space for you to dive deeper into the content and connect relationally with other church leaders just like you.
OC20 breakouts are now open
Either way, it’s important to know that registration for breakouts are now open. Just login on the conference site and select the breakouts that work best for your ministry.
Don’t wait—space is limited and breakouts fill up quickly. Be sure to grab your spot soon so you can hear your favorite speakers or learn about a topic you’re most interested in.
Breakout tracks include:
- Middle School
- High School
- Special Needs
- Marriage Ministry
- Parent Strategy

Not signed up for Orange Conference yet? If you’re interested, now is the best time to jump on this opportunity—because the price increases after February 20, 2020. You’ll save $44 if you purchase tickets before that date!
All of these incredible breakouts will revolve around our theme for 2020: Every Generation Needs a New Revolution.
Introducing Orange Labs
In previous years, the day before Orange Conference starts has been known as YouLead Day. In 2020, we’ve rethought this pre-conference experience. And we’re reintroducing it as Orange Labs.
Each lab is a unique, all-day masterclass, broken down into four interactive sessions and designed to help you take your ministry to the next level. You won’t leave with a to-do list. Instead, you’ll walk out with a to-DONE list and a team of ministry friends to help you make it happen!
Since we’re limiting attendance to only a few hundred people, you can expect individualized attention as the speakers answer questions and provide feedback specific to your ministry needs. To make things even better, lunch is included!
Once you’ve signed up, in the months leading up to Orange Conference, you’ll receive communication from your corresponding speakers that will include resources and pre-work to dive into as you prepare to get the most out of your experience.
You can add Orange Labs on to your Orange Conference experience for an additional $139.
