Event description

Description

The Texas Orphan Care Leaders Gathering is an annual event bringing together leaders of Christian foster care and adoption ministries across the State to raise awareness of the Church's efforts with elected officials and learn from experts in the fields of child welfare reform and church engagement to improve our work.

The Gathering spans two days, Friday, February 9th and Saturday, February 10th. Friday evening we will gather for the "State of Foster Care" Address from Bruce Kendrick, co-founder of Embrace Texas and Director of Orphan Care at Watermark Community Church. The Address will include a breakdown of statistics and an update on developments in child welfare for each region in the State. Dinner is provided as well.

Saturday will be at Grace Covenant, and our guest speaker, Matt Kouri, will provide a day-long intensive on organizational growth including leadership development and how to improve the strategic plan and health of your ministry or organization. It is our aim to help ministries and organizations remain healthy and grow to further the impact you have on the children and families you are serving in your community.

Due to limitations on space and the scope of Texas Orphan Care Leaders' mission, attendance will be determined by application. Early Registration is $30 per person (increases to $40 per person after December 1st) and covers Friday's dinner and Saturday's lunch as well as all training materials.

If your church or organization would like to sponsor the Texas Orphan Care Leaders Gathering, please contact info@embracetexas.org.
