SHOW HOPE HOLDS UPCOMING "EMPOWERED TO CONNECT" CONFERENCE by Merge PR on 2015-03-06 10:24:00
5 March 2015 - Franklin, Tenn - Show Hope,™ a nonprofit organization that helps restore the hope of a family to orphans in distress founded in 2003 by multi-award winning Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife Mary Beth, a New York Times' best-selling author, will offer its next Empowered To Connect (ETC) Conference April 10 and 11. The upcoming conference will be held in San Antonio, Texas and simulcasted for the first time ever to churches and event centers across the U.S. and Canada. There are already 270 churches registered to broadcast the simulcast to date with more registering weekly. It is expected for approximately 10,000 people to participate in the conference.
At this two-day event led by Dr. Karyn Purvis, Director of the TCU Institute of Child Development, ETC Conference attendees will receive much-needed guidance and support. They will learn how to better connect with children from hard places in order to help their children heal and become all that God intended for them to be. The 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, ministry leaders, counselors, and therapists.
Show Hope is offering this special simulcast so those who are unable to attend the San Antonio conference will have the opportunity to receive this critical training. If your church is interested in participating in this special event, find out more and register for the Live Simulcast by visiting showhope.org/etc.
In addition to the April ETC Simulcast, Show Hope will host its final conference of 2015 in Minneapolis Sept. 18-19.
Since Show Hope began this program two years ago, the ETC Conferences have impacted the lives of many adoptive children by equipping those who care for them. One participant recently shared with Show Hope about her experience at the southern California conference, stating "Words truly can not describe how much we were impacted. The conference not only unified our marriage and our parenting styles, but it gave us great compassion and understanding for our adopted daughter. We gained tools for our biological children as well and everyone we talked to at the conference said the same thing. I feel every parent, teacher, counselor and person that works with children should receive this training, not just adoptive or foster parents. We left feeling encouraged, inspired and empowered to lead our children. Show Hope has become a huge part of our adoption story and we are so grateful for your ongoing care, love and support."
