Empowered to Connect Conference
Fri, Apr 7, 2017, 9:00 AM – Sat, Apr 8, 2017, 5:00 PM CDT
Empowered To Connect, together with Show Hope and The Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU, hosts the Empowered To Connect Conference — a two-day conference designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders and professionals better understand how to connect with “children from hard places” in order to help them heal and become all that God desires for them to be.
The conference features David Cross, Mandy Howard, Daren Jones, Dan and Terri Coley, Ryan and Kayla North, Casey Call, and Cindy Lee and is ideal for adoptive and foster parents, those considering adoption or foster care and those who are serving and supporting others, including social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselors, therapists and others.
This two day conference event will be held from 9am to 5pm both Friday and Saturday. Doors open at 8:30am each day. Coffee, water and light refreshments will be provided during the morning and afternoon breaks. There will be a 1-and-a-half hour break scheduled for an off-site lunch each day.
DCFS has approved this conference for 6.5 hours of training credit each day for Illinois foster parents. Each attendee will receive a certificate of attendance which will be handed out at the end of each day.
