The Hope for the Journey Live Simulcast will be held in our Multi-Purpose Room on Friday, April 9 from 9am-5pm at a cost of $10 per person. The aim of this one day conference is to equip parents and caregivers meeting the everyday needs of children impacted by adoption and foster care. Special guests at the conference include Show Hope Founders, Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman, along with Executive Director, Emily Chapman Richards. Long-time affiliate organizations and partners, including the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU and Empowered to Connect, will also share teaching, insight, and practical applications.
This schedule includes five high-level learning modules based on the foundational principles of TBRI (Trust-Based Relational Intervention) along with a new teaching component, The Gospel + TBRI. Embedded within each learning module will be a Going Deeper teaching video on a select topic.
