Don’t forget to watch the spring/Easter themed videos in the “Little Praise Party App” for iOS and Android this month too.

We hope your week is going great. We are excited that the music video for Yancy’s song “I Can Count on God” is now on YouTube. You can watch it here. ”I Can Count on God” is the theme song Yancy wrote for the Jungle Safari Vacation Bible School by Standard Publishing. You can learn more about the VBS at http://www.vacationbibleschool.com

Have fun watching the video and be sure to share it with your family and friends too. Look for a church in your community doing the Jungle Safari VBS this summer and let your child experience learning about the nature of God. He is Creator, Provider, Protector, Savior and King.

I was asked to write a blog post for a friend’s site while he is on vacation with his family. I’d love to share the post with you. It’s about finding balance being a working mom.

In no way do I have it completely figured out. This motherhood thing is quite the ride but I’m so grateful for the journey. I hope my words will offer you some encouragement and spark some new thoughts for you.

Love and blessings friends!

Yancy

A great deal of what I do is lead worship. Most the time it’s for preteens and elementary kids. Some days it’s for preschoolers and some days it’s for adult congregations too. I love helping others grow in their abilities to lead worship. I thought I would share some posts I did for the Orange Leaders blog. I hope you’ll find these posts helpful.

And a few cool verses:

Psalm 145:3-7:

Lord, you are great. You are really worthy of praise.
No one can completely understand how great you are.
Parents will praise your works to their children.
They will tell about your mighty acts.
They will speak about your glorious majesty.
I will spend time thinking about your miracles.
They will speak about the powerful and wonderful things you do.

I will talk about the great things you have done.
They will celebrate your great goodness.
They will sing with joy about your holy acts. (NIrV)

Psalm 22:27&28,30&31

From the four corners of the earth people are coming to their senses, are running back to God. Long-lost families are falling on their faces before him…Our children and their children will get in on this As the word is passed along from parent to child. Babies not yet conceived will hear the good news— that God does what he says. (MSG)

The Orange Conference

February 12th, 2014

9AAB380F-69C2-4460-A184-8C01C6940C9C@hsd1.tn.comcast.net.

Every year I look forward to a conference that happens down south in Atlanta, GA. I have been at the conference every year since it launched in 2007 and wow, what a think tank it is for ideas on how churches can win well at partnering with the families in their congregation. You may have heard of Reggie Joiner, Orange, 252, First Look, Amber Sky….the list could go on and one. If you’re not familiar with the Orange strategy then I encourage you to dive in and see what all this company is doing that you as a church and as a parent could benefit from.

Orange Conference is happening this year April 30-May 2 down in Atlanta. http://theorangeconference.com

As an attendee one of my favorite parts of Orange is the general sessions. In my opinion these experiences are worth the travel time and the expense to get there. You’ll experience creativity that always inspires me. You’ll hear amazing communicators that I believe God uses mightily to speak the things that not enough Christian leaders are speaking. You’ll tap your foot and clap your hands along with some incredible musicians that will remind of music’s ability to teach a message as well as lead you into God’s presence through worship. You’ll laugh. They get some truly funny people and shenanigans on stage that will help you relax and just be. Every year I hear at least one message that I meditate on and share with others all year long. It’s the kind of truth that helps shape you into a better leader, spouse, parent and friend.

I’ve had the chance to be a part of Orange many times sharing music and teaching breakouts. It’s always a honor to impart and share what God has given me with other leaders that desire for their kids worship times to be great, to be something that actually teaches kids to worship and is done with excellence. I’m grateful for the chance that Orange has given me over the years to help leaders win in the area of kids’ worship.

In the breakout sessions is where the topics get broken down and the age group focus happens. (Oh yeah, did I mention the cool part about Orange is all in the same room at the same event you’ll find Senior Pastors, Student Ministry Leaders, Children’s Ministry, Preschool Ministry and more?) So never, fear between the pre-conference session and the breakouts happening through out you’ll be able to get some of those hands on basic tools pertaining to your area of ministry focus. Here is the full list of breakout sessions for 2014.

OK, so here’s the cool part. I get to give away a FREE Conference registration to this year’s Orange Conference! Woo hoo. Happy dance. Oh yeah. So here’s the scoop.

Conference ticket will be issued via email by Orange staff. If the winner has previously registered for OC14, the ticket will be refunded.

P.S. Passion oozes out of this event: The staff, the presenters, the attenders. I’ve never experienced a group of people more passionate and committed to working dilligently and effectively at helping churches help families win. I love Orange. I love it’s staff. I love it’s strategy. I love it’s leader, Reggie Joiner, he is a true friend. He is genuine and this world is truly a better place because of how he obeys God and the message he allows God to speak through him.

I hope I see you there. Come tap me on the shoulder and say hi when you see me there. Orangealicious baby, here we come!

Jungle Safari VBS At CPC East

January 28th, 2014

Recently Yancy took part in an awesome event for children’s pastors called CPC East. This year the event was in Orlando, FL at Disney World. During the opening session Yancy took the stage and lit up the night performing a few songs from the Jungle Safari VBS from Standard Publishing. Yancy writes and produces all the music and music videos. You can learn more about the VBS at http://www.vacationbibleschool.com

You can see the full conference recap video here: http://youtu.be/IOwuxTdinoQ?a including some of the glow stick fun. During the conference Yancy also taught two workshops: on creativity and leading preschool worship. Later this month the same conference will hit the west coast in Ontario, CA. Yancy will again take the stage making Jesus loud and sharing the awesome music from Jungle Safari VBS.

Last but not least here are a few pictures from the night. Special thanks to Jared Andersen’s band for rocking the music on stage with Yancy. Jared has a new kids CD out by the way. You should definitely check it out.
