What if the primary mission of the church is not to help the family, and the number one priority of the family is not to go to church? What if they are both designed to work together to show a generation who God is?
It's not EITHER/OR. It's BOTH/AND.
Two combined influences can make a greater impact than just two influences. Thinking Orange shifts our thinking from the church and family units being seperate influences to becoming fused together to impact the next generation with a reality of who God is and what He wants to do in their life:
- synchronized around a clear message
- to provoke parents and kids to fight for their relationships with each other
- recruiting Small Group Leaders to become partners with the family
- mobilizing the next generation to BE the church
