Event Details

Join us April 20-21 in Greenville (SC) for our first Together for Adoption Boot Camp. Our T4A Boot Camp is an intensive two-day event designed for Christians and ministry leaders who desire to journey further into the transformative theology of adoption (i.e. God's work of adoption within redemptive-history). You will spend valuable time with Together for Adoption’s leaders, be taught by other pastors/theologians, and have the opportunity to learn from respected leaders from orphan prevention, adoption, global orphan and foster care organizations. Our boot camp sessions will equip you with a robust theology of adoption and, if you choose, certify you to organize and lead Together for Adoption House Conferences in your area of the country.

Our first boot camp will be held April 20-21 at Downtown Presbyterian Church in beautiful Downtown Greenville, South Carolina. Learn more about our T4A Boot Camps.

The purpose of our boot camp is to provide gospel-centered teaching that magnifies the adopting grace of God the Father in Christ Jesus and mobilizes the church for global orphan care.

There is no registration fee to participate in a Together for Adoption Boot Camp, although you are responsible for all of your travel, lodging and meal expenses. When you register for a boot camp, we will provide you with a list of area hotels.

Registration is limited to fifty people. Early registration is recommended.


The training will be conducted in three phases:

Phase I – Pre-boot camp Coursework (reading assignments)

Phase II – Two Day On-site Intensive Training

Phase III – Post-training Follow up 


Boot Camp Objectives

By the end of the course, you will:

  • Understand adoption’s Trinitarian backdrop.
