CFX Behind the Scenes: Get a Sneak Peek at the Session Submission Process!

By Stephanie Lippi

2022 is now upon us, and we pray this new year brings blessings to you as you continue seeking the best ways to grow your ministries. Here at CFX, we have so enjoyed creating meaningful content and networking experiences through our first annual Church Facilities Conference & Expo as well as our Connections website over the past year! We’re gearing up for this new year, and we thought we’d keep you in the loop on what’s happening behind the scenes of CFX 2022.

Staffing Updates

We’ve been planning to take the CFX brand to the next level, and one way we’re working toward that is by welcoming Jim Wagner to the leadership of CFX. Jim helped to bring the former Worship Facilities Conference & Expo (WFX) event to its prominent place, and he’s eager to join the CFX team to see how we can continue growing our resources and skills to bring you the best experiences possible. Not only is he helping with oversight of the conference & expo, but he’s also advising the team that brings you the quality content on the Connections site year round.

Call for Speakers

Our goal, as always, is to connect you with the people who are skilled and knowledgeable in doing the things you do every day. That’s also the goal as we search for the speakers who will be at CFX 2022. We’re having conversations every week with outstanding speakers who are eager to help you grow your ministries.

But, how do we go about gathering the session information? That’s through our Call for Speakers submission process. Each person who has a session they’d like to present at CFX has to send us their proposal information. Then, a committee looks over the submissions to choose the perfect lineup of speakers and sessions to provide the best content at the conference. We’ll be sending out the Call for Speakers soon, and we’re so excited to see who will respond to the call!

In the meantime, we’re reworking the schedule to suit your needs better, and we’re discovering what topics are high on people’s lists of requests to find sessions that cover them. If you would like to share with us the questions you’re looking to find answers for, we’ll be happy to find ways to fit that into the program. Please contact Stephanie Lippi at to share your topic requests and questions.

With all of this in mind, we hope you’re just as excited as we are to meet again in Dallas this year! Registration will be opening in April, so save the date in order to save big. Bring your teams, and you can save even more.

Final Thoughts

Well, that’s a wrap for this first ever CFX Behind the Scenes blog post!  Stay tuned for more updates as CFX 2022 approaches. As the year progresses, we ask that you pray for us to have wisdom and favor in building a program and exhibit hall that will best serve each of you in your work for the Kingdom.

Many blessings to you all in this New Year!
