Description

Chosen for Life Ministries, All God's Children, and Nightlight Christian Adoptions are excited to host the "Empowered to Connect Conference Simulcast" on April 5-6th at Watkinsville First Baptist Church! This conference features Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) methods to help equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care. The content provided 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, and therapists.
