The mere existence of CEF conveys the message, ‘You are not alone.’

One application gives you access to the Global Event and Membership. 

The Event

We convene once a year to share ideas, build relationships, and encourage each other at the Global Event. Unlike many other events, the content at CEF is shaped by every person who attends.

Submitting a white paper is required to attend the event and over the course of 2-3 days, we host panel sessions and forum discussions where experts and industry leaders share their knowledge and experience on various topics. It’s a challenging and inspiring time together where everyone leaves feeling re-energized and focused on advancing redemptive stewardship in a broken and hurting world.

The Membership

The Global Event has been the core of CEF since it began in 2011. As the event grew and our delegates expressed a desire for deeper, year-long connection, we knew we needed to take the next step. In 2018, we launched our Membership model.

CEF Members have access to the network of individuals and content throughout the entire year. The member community is designed to encourage, inspire, and challenge. Every member is a high achiever with a higher calling, compelled to take action in order to advance the Kingdom of God.
