Next week, thousands of orphan care, foster care, and adoption advocates will meet in Dallas for the 2018 Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit … and whether or not you can be there, you CAN attend.
Last year’s conference drew over 2,000 advocates, pastors, and professionals from 30 countries. The summit explored effective foster care, adoption, family preservation, and global orphan ministry objectives. Take a look–
This year, the main sessions will be featured live stream so you can attend right where you are sitting. Here are 3 reasons we believe you should make every effort to watch–
1. You will be encouraged. The foster care/adoption journey can be isolating. This conference will remind you that you are not alone. Every speaker has walked the orphan care, foster care, or adoption journey and has encouragement to give you.
2. You will find resources. If you choose to take notes, you will likely refer back to them in the coming year(s). The robust general sessions are packed with practical suggestions and helpful food for thought.
3. You will be motivated. With speakers like Jedd Medefind, Sara Hagerty, and Jim Daly (and this is just scratching the surface–dozens of others will speak), you will find yourself re-charged and re-determined to enter the ring and fight for the fatherless.
Whether you are just getting started in your care for the fatherless or whether you are an adoptive or foster parent who feels parched in the process, this conference is for you.
So regardless of if you can make the conference this year, please consider tuning in to the livestream. See you on Wednesday!
There is such tremendous value to a Summit like this as people come together to say, ‘How can we best show God’s love to orphans here and around the world–through our lives, our families, and our churches?’ –David Platt
If you are attending CAFO2018 in Dallas, please stop by the Lifesong for Orphans table and say, “Hi!” We want to connect with you and meet you in person (or catch up if we’ve met in the past!) Connecting with people like you is a big reason we attend this conference every year.
