CAFO Summit Info/Grants

CAFO2020 has been rescheduled to September 9-11, due to COVID-19. More than ever we need each other and the world needs the Church to stand up in new ways, on behalf of the most vulnerable among us. Make plans to join us during this crucial time!

Hephzibah62:4 has chosen the Christian Alliance For Orphans (CAFO) Summit as an annual gathering place for Wesleyan pastors, church staff, lay leaders, caregivers/parents and advocates to be inspired, encouraged and gain insight into best practices in caring for vulnerable children.


Unforgettable. A community of kindred hearts. Gathering from across America and around the world. Parents and pastors, experts and organizations, leaders and servants. Each eager both to share and to receive — expertise and encouragement, resources and friendship. All passionate to see children thrive in adoption, foster care and effective service to the vulnerable worldwide. Seeking justice and mercy, rooted deep in the Gospel of God’s unfailing love.

Connection Dinner: A Wesleyan/Hephzibah62:4 Connection Dinner is held on Wednesday evening of the main conference to connect fellow Wesleyans in community, to inspire and inform through the latest Hephzibah62:4 stories and initiatives. 

Make plans to join us now!

I have been serving in Child Welfare for over twenty years, yet while attending the CAFO conference God still provided fresh insight for my heart and mind regarding those of us that He has inspired to respond to what is described in Psalm 10:14: 

‘But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted. You consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.’
