Show Hope is partnering with Empowered To Connect to present the Empowered To Connect Conference on September 12-13, 2014, in Washington, DC. This two day conference will be held at Reston Bible Church, and hosted by founding Show Hope board members, Dan and Terri Coley. Each day's sessions will run from 9am-5pm (check-in opens at 8am), with an 1 1/2 hour lunch for attendees (on-site lunches are availabe for purchase when registering).
The Empowered To Connect Conference is a two-day conference for adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders and professionals designed to help them 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.
Led by Dr. Karyn Purvis (Director of the TCU Institute of Child Development) together with Michael & Amy Monroe (Leaders of Tapestry Adoption & Foster Care Ministry), 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, counselors, therapists and others involved in adoption and foster care ministries or services.
