FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We’ve designed the conference for entire family ministry teams. We encourage you to not only bring your department, but all interested in a complete strategy for the church. Our offerings touch on subject matter for preschool, children’s, student, NextGen and senior leaders as well as volunteers. Everyone has a place at The Orange Conference.
You won’t need them for your initial registration. So, that’s an easy answer! During the sign-up process, our very smart registration system will take the information about your church’s name and address and see if it matches any other existing accounts in our database. A few clicks from there, and we’ll match you up with the correct information.
For the purpose of the conference, we define groups as 15 people or more. To obtain the discount as well as find out about all the swanky perks that come with it, please fill out this form and someone will be in contact with you soon. If you register a few and then later register more people to achieve groups status, your additions will receive the current groups discount and you’ll still be eligible for all the on-site fun stuff, too.
We make every effort to post the breakouts as soon as possible. When they become available, we will send an email to everyone who is registered so that they can begin making selections. Please note that your leader must assign names to the registrations in order for individuals to receive notification and make personalized selections.
We’re going to make it really easy for you to do that. For now, you can either register a block of registrations and assign names later, or you can go ahead and assign specific names to each registration once they’ve been purchased. Once we post the details about breakout offerings, each person in your group will be able to select which session he or she would like to attend. As a group leader, you will also have the option to assign breakouts on behalf of each individual. You have the power (Insert He-Man voiceover here)!
If you are the group leader, all you need to do is log into your existing group reservation (use the button in the upper right of this page-or of any page). Then click on the “Admin” link. Near the top of the next page, you’ll see a link for “Ticket Management” – click on that link and look for another link that says “Add YOULEAD.” If you run into any difficulties, just check in with our partner support team and they’ll help you out!
