Starting Conversations About Orphans

Are you having trouble communicating why you have chosen to walk the adoption journey? Or maybe you have tried time and time again to get your church to start an adoption or orphan care ministry, and it just hasn’t clicked yet. How do you start and kindly facilitate a conversation that shows God’s heart for the orphan and our response as the church? Host a Coffee Conversation.

Recreate this atmosphere by hosting an intentional Coffee Conversation with your church, Sunday school class or small group. Maybe it’s a one-on-one meeting with your pastor at a local coffee shop or maybe it’s an event with small group.  Use this kit to help you share about the needs and opportunities to care for orphans with provided discussion questions and scripture … Continue reading

3 Ways to Pray for CAFO2014 Presenters

In anticipation of this year’s CAFO2014 Summit, we would like to do something special in honor of this powerful conference. Annually, CAFO2014 hosts thousands of people from all over the country (& the world!), bringing everyone together for one purpose: God’s love for the orphan. Tools, resources, testimonies and opportunities are available and it’s nearly impossible to walk away uninspired. God’s love for the orphan is being poured out into The Church, His People, and it is vitally important that we give this conference TO HIM through prayer, because HE needs to be at the core of each and every inspiration and effort. So, join us this next month as we Pray for CAFO2014 – asking God into these days to further the work of orphan care, adoption and foster care. Today, lift up CAFO2014’s Speakers and Musicians (see featured below) through these three prayers.  Pray for preparation. Lord, be with … Continue reading
