So what is ORANGE?
Orange is a strategy for combining critical influences in life to fuel faith in the next generation.
Orange is a path, a strategy that combines the strength of two—yellow and red—to create the brilliance of another, Orange. By combining the critical influences of the light of the church (yellow) and the love of the family (red), the Orange strategy synchronizes efforts and shows a generation who God is, more effectively than either could alone.
Orange is a comprehensive plan. Imagine every leader and every parent in your church with exactly the same strategy in mind for reaching the end goal.
From preschool through high school, the Orange Strategy draws on the elements of wonder, discovery and passion, infusing them into children, students and young adults. Why? To see God for who He is, to help young people see themselves the way God sees them, so that they can love others the way God does.
Starting with wonder, Orange helps preschoolers embrace a God who is bigger than their imagination, then adds discovery so children can understand how to grow in their relationship with God. Finally, Orange fuels passion by giving students opportunities to be the church and to make a difference influencing their generation.
Orange is a unique approach to curriculum. The Orange curriculum is always relevant, biblical, engaging and experiential, but there are also six additional distinctives of all our resources.
PERPETUALLY INNOVATIVE – Orange curriculum is known for innovation and creativity. Our writers, editors, video producers and creative directors are always thinking of new ways to say, show and teach timeless truths. Everything is being rewritten and repackaged continually.
PARENT LINKED – Every Orange curriculum has unique “parent cues” that connect and engage them in the overall strategy. Look for the “cue” in each curriculum to partner with parents and combine your influence with theirs.
LEADER NETWORKED – Each church is assigned one or more Orange Specialist to personally assist you in implementing the curriculum and strategy. They’ll also help you connect to a community of other leaders who are passionate about the same things you are.
UNIQUELY CUSTOMIZABLE – It’s a trademark of our curriculum: bend it; shape it; make it your own. Because it’s Web-based, the material can be edited to fit your environment.
STRATEGICALLY SYNCHRONIZED – Orange is the only curriculum that offers a consistent, unifying strategic plan from preschool through high school. Part of the overall strategy is to synchronize the efforts of all leaders and establish consistency in the lives of kids and teenagers from preschool through high school.
RELATIONALLY DRIVEN – Our strategy emphasizes small groups, making it easy to connect kids to mentors and leaders who can personally invest in them.
Orange is a community. When you’re Orange, you’re not alone.
