Orange + The Barna Group: The Intersection of the Church and Family Exclusive Report Released at The Orange Conference

ATLANTA, ( -- The Orange Conference, creative brainchild of Reggie Joiner and the reThink Group, is an unconventional gathering of innovative thinkers, speakers, church leaders and entertainers with a mutual goal to "re-think" the way that the traditional church approaches family ministry.

Orange pioneered a revolutionary strategy by entertaining the concept that parents, as partners with church leadership, create the most impacting center of influence for children and teenagers. "Thinking Orange" blends two vital, yet often unconnected worlds to reshape the current ministry model.

A new study commissioned by Orange with the Barna Group examines how parents view the church and how churches can partner with, rather than replace the efforts of, parents. The exclusive findings will be released at the Orange Conference to attendees.

The Orange Conference is remarkably positioned to inspire effective change--toward a lasting dynamic partnership between church and family. Robin T., an attendee of the 2009 conference said, "It doesn't take a ton of money, it takes a change in attitude and motive, a strategy and a goal." With over 1,000 churches represented, this is the largest Orange event to date.

Keynote speakers for the Orange Conference include Donald Miller, bestselling author of Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality, Reggie Joiner, founder and CEO of the reThink Group, Rev Run, from the MTV hit show Run's House, Doug Fields, Mark Batterson, Perry Noble, John Ortberg, Nancy Ortberg and David Kinnaman.

The Orange Conference will be held at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia beginning Wednesday, April 28, 2010 and concluding on Friday, April 30, 2010. Further details regarding additional speaker, entertainers and session specific information can be found by visiting
