Christian Caregiver Conference and Resources

Home Conferences Resources About SomeOne Cares


SomeOne Cares featured two life-changing conferences in one great weekend. Thursday and Friday focused on helping church staff and lay leaders Beth Vaughan-Wrobellearn to create and maintain a caregiver ministry in their churches and communities. Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon was for caregivers caring for terminally, critically, chronically, and mentally ill or developmentally disabled.

Our time together featured over 40 concurrent workshops, inspiring general sessions, daily praise and worship, and a free Friday night concert by the Dove award winning artist, Scott Krippayne.


Breakout sessions for the two groups included the following topics.
