If you have read my posts for any amount of time, you may know that I am quite fond of a family ministry organization called Orange. I have written several posts about Orange, and I highly encourage you to check them out in my Archives. Truly, they have equipped me to lead better in every facet of my ministry - from parents to students to working with my Lead Pastor. I highly commend them to you as a resource and support community.
A quick caveat for non-paid youth workers: I highly commend this Orange to you as a resource regardless of your capacity in family ministry. I believe that anyone who reads an Orange resource - whether you are a Lead Pastor, Youth Pastor, volunteer, parent, or caring adult - you will be further equipped to support your local church and participate in the work of God in the lives of families living in your community.
This week, Orange launched a new initiative. They opened to the public for the first time OrangeBooks.com.
