*Issue Focused Working Group (Supporter and Champion)

A member of the church’s leadership team is requested to serve on one of three working groups (adoption, foster or global orphan care). Each group will address one critical issue together annually — framing the challenge and identifying best-in-class practices and resources for effective response and ministry application.

*Copies of "Everyone Can Do Something" book

“Everyone Can Do Something” is a field guide for strategically rallying your church around the orphaned and vulnerable. In it you will discover how to clarify your message, make the problem relatable, set strategic priorities, develop a plan and outline best next steps for your ministry.

All Champion level churches will receive two free copies of the book!

*Free Registration for "OVC Essentials Course"

OVC Essentials provides an experience of shared learning, critical and foundational knowledge, and personal enrichment to interns, students, young leaders, and a variety of others at the start of their journey in caring for the orphan and vulnerable child. Our goal is to lay a foundation for lifelong service to vulnerable children – from professional work to volunteer ministry to family life – while allowing you to connect with others who share your passion.

*NCMI Advisory Team (Champion Gold Only)

The senior ministry team leader (or pastoral staff member) is requested to serve on the NCMI Advisory Team, designed to confer on the current state and direction of the movement. This commitment will include one in-person meeting of the full team at Summit (Spring) and one leader-to-leader phone call by each member (Fall) with Jason Johnson, Director of CAFO’s Church Ministry Initiative.

*Christian Leadership Alliance Membership

We are partnering with CLA (Christian Leadership Alliance) to offer this leadership benefit to our Church Supporters and Champions.

CLA Individual Membership Includes: 1 Seat (with the option to add 2 additional members), all benefits here with exclusion of the Christianity Today subscription.

Through Membership in CAFO, you not only receive, but you help cultivate and guide a movement better together than we could ever could apart.
