Event description

Description

The Empowered to Connect Conference is a two-day event presented by Show Hope.

Experience practical teaching in a safe and supportive community as we work to equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care.

This year’s conference includes Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, which exists to bring attachment and connection in families. The nationwide participation in the Empowered to Connect Conference is a testament to the impact and work of Dr. Karyn Purvis.

Redeeming Grace Church will be hosting a simulcast of the conference at our building located at 1113 Murfreesboro Rd, Suite 310, Franklin, TN, 37064 (down the corridor from Sola Salons). Doors will open at 8:30am. We do have a limited number of seats, and day-of-event registration is not available. If you are only planning to attend one day of the conference, please register for the day you are planning to attend. If you are planning to attend both days, please register for both days (you will have to register once for Friday and once for Saturday).

There will be no childcare available on site. Please make arrangements accordingly.
