A Live Simulcast of the Empowered to Connect Conference will be presented only in churches... streamed from the live conference in San Antonio on April 10-11, 2015! This is a first... and is an opportunity for your church to host this simulcast and provide the invaluable content that, until this event, has only been available in person. Dr. Karyn Purvis and her team from the TCU Institute of Child Development, along with the team from Empowered to Connect and Show Hope, will be sharing and presenting information that will help families and professionals in nurturing and caring for children. Professionals can also earn CEUs by attending the simulcast.
New Life Family Fellowship in Asheboro, NC will be hosting the simulcast along with churches from all over the country. Please reach out to your church staff today about registering for and hosting this tremendous conference.
Dr. Karyn Purvis has devoted the past twelve years to developing research-based
interventions for at-risk children. She and her colleague Dr. David
Cross co-authored the best-selling adoption book,
The Connected Child (2007). You will also hear from Show Hope board
members, Dan and Terri Coley. The Coleys have served as foster parents
for more than 40 infants and
birthmothers, and have adopted children domestically and
internationally. Their family is multi-racial and includes children with
special needs. It is their heart’s desire for every child to have a
family, but through personal experience they have come to know the
importance of understanding the challenges and needs of children from
“hard places.” Dan and Terri are committed to help educate and prepare
families for the adoption journey and empower them with the tools to
help children heal while maintaining healthy families.
