Feed Your Soul
Encouragement and Renewal is right around the corner. Summit is full of opportunities for rest, refreshment, and restoration. We meet you where you are, so that you can remain steadfast and vibrant in the long, hard work of justice and mercy.
SMALL MATTERS. Little Things Can (Re)Make a Life
The theme for this year’s conference is, “SMALL MATTERS. Little things can (re)make a life.”
What are the small actions that prove most significant over time — to heal a wounded child? Inspire a church? Strengthen a struggling family? Grow a team? Restore a weary soul? Join servants and leaders from across America and around the world at CAFO2020 to explore together the little things that make the biggest difference.
Praise & Petition
During the Praise & Petition sessions, be encouraged by live worship music while interceding on behalf of others.
Soul Care Track
From adoption & foster parenting to discipleship to family dynamics to organizational health to personal battles… deep commitment to soul care is essential for fruitful leadership and ministry.
Find hope, encouragement and thoughtful insight for spiritual healing and growth!
During each General Session we hope you’ll be inspired and encouraged by the musicians leading us this year!
