what we do

We influence those who influence the faith and future of the next generation.

As a 501 (c)(3) non-profit we work to achieve this mission through our partnership with two primary influences: the church and the home.

Orange aligns the church and the family.

The Orange Strategy aligns leaders and parents to create community around a timeless message that mobilizes the next generation to love God and serve others.

Church

What if what you do every week was connected to a comprehensive strategy? We help you go beyond a weekly service into a more engaging ministry strategy that aligns the voices in every student or kid’s life and leads them into deeper faith.

Home

When you engage every parent and caregiver at home, you help support the primary faith influence in a kids life. With Orange, you can connect strategically with parents and help every family have a richer faith experience.
