Come, take a load off and relax while we help you recenter your life with God, others and self. Refresh is a Christian conference designed for foster and adoptive parents, kinship providers, grandparents, and others who care for vulnerable children. Refresh is not a foster/adoptive recruiting conference. It is all about supporting parents like you on your post-placement journey. We understand firsthand that this journey can be difficult and lonely. The Refresh Conference is a time for you to escape from the distractions and chaos of life and be physically, emotionally, and spiritually refreshed and inspired.

Four Pre-Conference Tracks on March 2 to choose from:

  1. Blocked Care: When you've lost compassion w/ Lisa Qualls & Melissa Corkum
  2. Soul Care: How to manage Your Own Health w/ Brandi Lea
  3. TBRI Deep Dive for Caregivers w/ Renea Dupuis
  4. Anchored: A Bible Study for Self-Worth w/Cindy Lee

Some of the many activities included:

  • Four Main Speaker Sessions
  • Dozens of Breakout Topical Sessions
  • The First Timer’s Welcome, Tips & Tricks
  • Caregiver's Chill and Play Area
  • Quite Zone and Nap Room
  • Sensory Exploration Room with an OT
  • Live Equinel Experience
  • 1-on-1 Connection Coaching
  • Pamper Your Soul Station
  • Night of Worship
  • Mom & Dad's Breakfast
  • Family Resource C.A.R.E. Kit
  • Single Parents Dinner

Some of the Speakers who will be refreshing you: Lisa Qualls, Beth Guckenberger, Elizabeth Styffe, Stephanie Fast, Kyle Raney, Jayne and David Schooler, Deborah Gray, Lynne Ellis-Gray, Brandi Lea Bergren, Cindy Lee, Derek Hamer, Nathan Ross, Renea Dupuis, Melissa Corkum, Pam Parish and Ted Lowe.

Travel Info: We recommend booking flights to John Wayne Airport (SNA) and staying at the Courtyard by Marriott or the Ayres Hotel where shuttles will be available to and from the conference. There are few other cheaper hotel/motels near the conference but the reviews are less favorable.

COVID Update: Based on Covid infection trends we anticipate that by March 2022 the rate of infection will drop and it will be as safe as possible for our conference. So we don't believe that we will need to cancel the conference and that wearing masks will be a choice that people will make for themselves. The current mask mandates are due to expire in February. We plan to have plenty of hand sanitizer available and lots of space for social distancing. Our worship center has no side walls so it’s more of an indoor/outdoor space with unrestricted airflow. This will be the safest conference experience featuring mostly outdoor venues.
