Heart-felt worship led by a true Child Advocate. Engaging speakers that inspired me, encouraged me, conveyed gratitude to me, resonated with my heart, mind and soul like real kindred spirits in my passion for children in poverty, and moved me to take action in step with my calling. Participation in trip to a Compassion child development center via Skype that transcended geographic and a whole host of other barriers in order to visit with children we serve. Hearing first-hand testimony from an alumnus of Compassion’s holistic child development program and witnessing the impact of a young man that has been released from poverty in Jesus’ name.

That was my experience last month when I attended the Experience Compassion Conference in Chicago, one of the true highlights of my year. All of this and more (like hearing from the heart of Compassion’s new President and from an independent researcher who provides evidence that Compassion’s program works) awaits you as Child Advocates like yourself convene in Colorado Springs, Compassion’s global home, for the biggest Experience Compassion Conference yet on June 27-28.
