The Foursquare Church’s Steve Cauble Drives Change

By Leigh Harper, September 4, 2018

Cost is another driver in his destination selections.

“Growing up, my mom and dad had to watch every penny to be able to attend,” says Cauble. “I’m [always] looking to secure a win for both the corporate provider and the attendee.”

Foursquare Connection has been held in cities from coast-to-coast, with the 2017 event in Washington, D.C., and the 2018 convention in Seattle in May. The 2019 convention is secured for Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville.

With such widespread host cities, the 14 geographic districts of the Foursquare denomination are an essential asset to Cauble’s work.

“We tap into each district to help with a different aspect of the event,” he explains. The churches in the host city’s district are called upon to help with furnishing the child care spaces with rockers and baby gear, along with supplying volunteers who can field questions at the info booth. Up to 100 volunteers are engaged to execute a convention, and many of them reside in the local district.

In addition to planning the Foursquare convention, Cauble manages book sales and speaking engagements for his ex-wife, Lisa Whelchel of “The Facts of Life” fame.

“We’re still best friends and see each other all the time, along with our three grown kids,” he says of Whelchel, who was his wife for 24 years.

In addition to his work with Foursquare, Cauble also plans events for organizations like the Christian Community Development Association and international gatherings for the C.S. Lewis Foundation.
