WHAT IS CREATIVITY:ORLANDO?

Creativity:Orlando is a hands-on workshop for leaders who know that we can’t keep doing church the same old way – it’s time we get creative!

  • HOPE for the CHURCH from theologians, pastors and experts in creative leadership.
  • INSIGHT into connecting with our ever-changing culture.
  • FREEDOM to dream and think outside the box about being the church today.
  • RENEWAL from the Holy Spirit as we lean deep into the creative work of God.
  • LOCAL CHURCH ACTION PLAN developed by you and our Leadership Nexus consultants, to take home and apply in your local setting.
  • LEADERSHIP TRAINING from “behind the scene” staff at Walt Disney World

DAY ONE: INSPIRING CREATIVITY

The world has changed. Daily we must rethink how to be the church in a post-Christian era. Finding the energy to think creatively about ministry can be hard. On this first day, through engaging worship, provocative keynotes, creative experiences, and relationship building, we will tackle this new reality while being encouraged and inspired.

SCHEDULE FOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 22

8:00 AM – Registration
9:00 AM – Opening Worship
10:00 AM – Biblical Foundations for Creativity with Leonard Sweet
11:00 AM – Creating Magic with Rich Taylor

DAY TWO: PRACTICING CREATIVITY

Conference goers will have the unique opportunity to stretch their creative thinking through a field trip to Disney World and a chance to learn from “behind the scenes” cast members. Conference goers will also receive a Leadership Nexus Creativity:Orlando field guide to help you get the most out of your park experience. Conference registration does not include park admission.

SCHEDULE FOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23
LOCATION: Off site

Conference goers will set their own start time based on when they want to get to the park and when the cast members are available.

​DAY THREE: APPLYING CREATIVITY

On this final day conference goers will learn from innovative leaders successfully applying the concepts taught throughout the conference. With these helpful “how to’s” in our tool belts along with all the other lessons learned throughout the week, conference goers will work one on one with our Leadership Nexus speakers and consultants to develop practical action plans to put into practice when we get home. These action plans and personal consultations are worth the price of admission to the conference.

HOTEL INFORMATION

In today’s world, travel websites provide a much better discount than we could offer by designating a conference hotel. Therefore, we’ve chosen to provide a list of nearby hotels instead of designating a specific conference hotel. We hope this will help as you make your travel arrangements. First UMC is a downtown church with limited parking. We picked hotels within walking distance to the church with their own parking so you do not need to search for parking each morning.
