CAFO2016 Summit -- Conference

Location: First Baptist Church Orlando, Orlando FL


Global faith community is increasingly at forefront of growing trend ORLANDO, FL — Care for orphans has been a defining trait of Christianity since the early church. This commitment has surged in recent years, from US foster care and adoption to global orphan care. The annual Christian Alliance for Orphans’ Summit in Orlando, FL on May 5­th has become the hub for what Christianity Today called “the burgeoning orphan care movement.” Indicators of this growing movement include:

● According to ECFA, while giving by Americans to all causes last year grew a dramatic 5.4%, giving to Christian adoption and related care for vulnerable children grew by more than double that rate — 11.2%!

● According to Barna Research, practicing Christians adopt at rates more than double the general population, and foster at rates 50% higher.

● Engagement by Christians with local foster care is growing across America, provoking headlines such as, “A Church Movement to Give Every Child a Home” (TIME Magazine), “Make Foster Care Work, Let Churches Lead” (Bloomberg) and “Fostering Hope: How the Church is changing the face of foster care and adoption in the U.S.” (Relevant Magazine).

● This trend is not just in the US. Christians across the globe are stepping up for local orphans, from Kansas to Katmandu. The number of countries where Churches celebrate Orphan Sunday has grown from two in 2009 to 72 last year.

● Top Christian leaders increasingly champion the Bible’s call to give special care for the orphan, from David Platt, Steven Curtis Chapman, Jim Daly and John Piper (all adoptive parents) to Rick & Kay Warren and Francis Chan. In mid-2016, a book by the SBC’s Russell Moore and CAFO President Jedd Medefind (both adoptive fathers) will highlight the Church’s role in foster care, adoption and orphan care.

The CAFO Summit is both a driver and a measure of this trend, growing from 38 attendees in 2004 to 3,000 expected this year. Adoptive and foster parents, pastors, orphan advocates and other Christian leaders from across America and around the globe gather to collaborate in both growing and guiding Christian action for vulnerable children. As Grammy-winning musician Steven Curtis Chapman expressed about Summit, “How can you not look at that and see, there’s definitely a movement of God going on.” More than 175 respected Christian organizations unite through the Christian Alliance for Orphans in a model of uncommon unity, working together to ignite and equip Christians to care effectively for orphans. CAFO members include ministries as diverse as Bethany Christian Services, Show Hope, Family Life, Compassion International and Focus on the Family. Also central to CAFO are many of the nation’s strongest Church-­based orphan ministries, from Calvary Chapel Ft. Lauderdale and Saddleback to First Baptist Orlando and the Moody Church.

More than 120 workshops at Summit offer instruction from top national experts on topics ranging from parenting and attachment in adoption and foster care, to Church-­based family support ministries, to Church and State partnerships, to global Church­ to Church collaborations. Summit also features concerts, movie screenings, special resources for adoptive and foster families, more than 75 booths and exhibits, a marketplace of global arts and crafts and a bookstore, and a host of other opportunities, including CEU credit via NASW. Ultimately, it all is designed to inspire, connect and equip for effective action for vulnerable children. “Throughout history, Christians at their best have been known for the ‘pure and faultless religion’ that cares for the orphan in distress,” said Jedd Medefind, President of the Christian Alliance for Orphans. “It’s thrilling to see Christians rising to this call once again. We join together at Summit to learn how to live out this call wisely and well.” Interviews available with CAFO President Jedd Medefind from March 1 to March 31. Medefind formerly led the White House Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives for President George W. Bush. His most recent book is Becoming Home: Adoption, Foster Care and Mentoring – Living God’s Heart for Orphans.
