Hope for the Journey Conference

Friday, May 13, 2022


Hope for the Journey Conference (formerly known as the Empowered to Connect Conference) brings together proven, practical teaching and insight as well as everyday, hopeful wisdom—designed for parents and caregivers meeting the needs of children impacted by adoption and/or foster care. And for the churches and organizations seeking to serve these children and families, you will gain a better understanding of their complex needs along with resources to equip you in your walk with them. 

Structurally, the Hope for the Journey Conference will include five high-level learning modules based on the foundational principles of Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) along with a fifth teaching component, The Gospel + TBRI. Embedded within each learning module will be a “Going Deeper” teaching video on a select topic, and also included will be one practical, encouraging “Practical Perspectives” videos featuring the voices of adult adoptees as well as adoptive and foster families.
