iDisciple Podcast: Orphans and Foster Care



Jedd Medefind joins the iDisciple Podcast in an eye-opening discussion centered around a very important issue: the church’s role in taking care of orphans and foster children.

The Christian Alliance for Orphans, or CAFO, is an organization that unites more than 180 of the world’s most respected Christian organizations and a global network of churches. Together, the Alliance works to ignite and equip individuals and churches for adoption, foster care and overseas orphan care ministry.

Prior to his role as President of CAFO, Jedd made a lasting impact through a variety of positions in the California State Legislature, and was eventually selected to lead the White House’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. Jedd currently resides in California with his wife Rachel and their five children.

We hope this episode will motivate you to live out God’s calling to care for orphans!
