The Origin of CFO
Glenn Clark, the founder of CFO, was a man who knew the power of prayer through personal experience. When he sought to share his dynamic faith in God, the dream of the Camps Farthest Out became a reality. The first CFO camp was held in 1930, and there are now well over a hundred camps in North America and around the world. As Glenn Clark described it, "The Camps Farthest Out are dedicated to the purpose of discovering the wholeness of that abundant life which Christ promised, that life which is our rightful heritage whenever we dedicate our body, mind and soul completely to God through play, work and worship."
Camps Farthest Out are non-denominational Christian gatherings which provide an opportunity to receive spiritual, mental, and physical renewal. The purpose of this rejuvenation is to return to His world to better serve Him in His Church, in our families, in business, and wherever He may lead. CFO can be characterized as a spiritual training ground, a time apart from the turmoil of everyday life to practice, in the midst of experiencing, the warm presence of Jesus, the love of the Father, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is an adventure in finding the wholeness of life in Jesus Christ, as well as a period of uniting Christians of all denominations for prayer, spiritual growth and healing.
