Love Fosters Hope and Orphan Care Network hosts the Empowered To Connect Conference, together with Show Hope and The Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU — a two-day conference designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders, educators 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 Daren Jones and Sarah Mercado, both training specialists with the Karen Purvis Institute of Child Development; Dan & Terri Coley, Show Hope founding board members; and Casey Call, Ph.D. and assistant director at the Karen Purvis Institute of Child Development. This conference 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, educators, counselors, therapists and others.

You may download the conference workbook for free to your tablet, laptop, or phone (ETC Workbook 2019). It is not mandatory to have the workbook but it’s recommended to have a digital or hard copy with you. NO HARD COPIES WILL BE PROVIDED AT THE CONFERENCE.

You will be given a 60-minute lunch break each day. There are several restaurants in the area from which to choose.
