Save the date — September 10 & 11, 2010 — for the Empowered To Connect Conference in Nashville!

Show Hope and Empowered To Connect are partnering to present the Empowered To Connect Conference on September 10 & 11, 2010, in Nashville, Tennessee. This two day conference will be hosted at Covenant Presbyterian Church by longtime Show Hope board members and friends of the Chapmans, Dan and Terri Coley.

The Empowered To Connect Conference will feature two tracks with sessions and workshops led by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Michael & Amy Monroe. All participants are highly encouraged to attend sessions on both days, and professionals will be eligible to receive CEU credit for their participation in the conference.

Day One of the conference is specifically designed for those focused on serving and supporting others, including social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselors, therapists, adoption and orphan advocates, and others involved in adoption and foster care ministries or services.

Day Two of the conference is tailored to the needs of adoptive and foster parents (pre- and post-adoption and foster care).

The conference will run from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm each day. Light refreshments will be provided during breaks, with “on your own” lunch breaks scheduled from 12:00 to 1:30pm.
