The Idea Camp Orphan Care is coming to NW Arkansas on Feb 25th & 26th and Cobblestone Project is proud to help bring this event to our community. The world is full of people with great ideas. Unfortunately for many, they will take these ideas all the way to the grave without ever actualizing them. Whether it's an idea for a song, book, organization, business, ministry, family or even plans to make the world a better place, these dreamers, many with noble intent, will never see their passions realized.
The Idea Camp was birthed out of a simple hope to help people move closer to implementing their God-given ideas by creating a healthy environment in which everyday people are able to share ideas, sharpen each other's thoughts, and collectively move together to benefit humanity.
The Idea Camp will facilitate a safe and transparent environment of learning, sharing of insights from the respective fields of focus, and practical insights and examples of holistic care. As a faith centered conference, there will be an on-going focus on the importance of living as God’s loving expressions of grace and hope to the world through tangible acts of care in this area.
We will facilitate fresh, honest and transformative conversations with leading thinkers on topics including adoption, foster care, child sponsorship, community development, US & International care, trafficking & orphan care, special needs, cross-cultural & religious boundaries, and many more.
Using an interactive platform and collective of leading thinkers and practitioners from the field, participants will be able to learn from leading experts as well as one another, share best practices, and work toward collaborative efforts. In addition, those following online will be able to experience the conference via the latest tools in social media. All of the general sessions and a handful of workshops will be streamed live and recorded to be used as future resources online.
