Empowered to Connect Simulcast

April 7, 2017 @ 10:00 am - April 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm

DC127 is delighted to host a simulcast of the 2017 Empowered to Connect Conference.

Empowered To Connect, together with Show Hope and The Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU, is a two-day conference designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders and professionals 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.

The conference features David Cross, Mandy Howard, Daren Jones, Dan and Terri Coley, Ryan and Kayla North, Casey Call, and Cindy Lee and 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.

Friday, April 7 from 10-6:00pm
Saturday, April 8th from 10-6:00pm
Lunch will be provided both days

This conference has been approved by the NASW for 11 CEUs and by the National Board of Certified Counselors for NBCC credits. Professionals seeking credits must register for those separately, here. It’s also been approved for 13 (6.5 per day) DC foster parent training credits. Certificates will be distributed at the conference for other states or uses.

The church is just a few blocks from the Eastern Market Metro (orange, silver, and blue lines) and there is  2-hour street parking in the area, as well. Natural breaks will be built in to move cars, if needed.

You can get tickets for only one of the days, but DC127 encourages attendance on both days as the days complement each other. You can see a full agenda of the days here.
