Abstract Are Due January 30, 2019
The CCIH 2019 Conference will be held June 6-8 at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. Our theme is Called to Care: A Strong Community for Lasting Health. At our core, faith communities are called to care for themselves and those in need. Paul’s letter in Philippians 2:3-4 reminds us to “do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
The conference will explore questions such as:
- How do we build capacity of local caring communities and organizations?
- How can faith-based organizations incorporate human-centered design? (Program design that considers the human perspective in all steps of development and problem solving.)
- Are faith-based programs themselves resilient and innovative?
- Are we working with other faith-based organizations, churches, government agencies, NGOs, and others to ensure our communities are self-sufficient?
- How are faith-based organizations integrating faith and work in the field?
And much more.

CCIH will provide LU with a list of all confirmed conference attendees for cross-reference. After the conference, CCIH will issue a link to participants to go to the Liberty University website and pay $25 USD to Liberty, who will then issue a certificate of completion for a certain number of hours. It will be up to the conference attendee to submit the continuing education units (CEU) certificate to his or her credentialing agency to determine if the agency will give credit for attending the CCIH conference.
