About Empowered to Connect

Steven Curtis Chapman's Show Hope adoption grant foundation has partnered with the late Karen Purvis and Empowered to Connect in order to host a conference for those dealing with trauma in children from hard places.

Grace Fellowship will be simulcasting the Empowered to Connect Conference on April 5th and 6th from 10a.m-6 p.m.  The Empowered To Connect Conference features two days of practical teaching in a safe and supportive community equipping families, churches, and professionals to help better understand how to connect with children from hard places.

The Empowered to Connect Conference features the Trust-Based Relational Intervention methods to help bring attachment and connection in families. These methods were developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development. The content is ideal for foster and adoptive parents, social workers, agency professionals, counselors and therapists.

This conference will not only impact the families in our community, but also the teachers, social workers and counselors who work alongside them.  In fact, Continuing Education Credits are available for those who attend the conference. 

The cost is $12 per person and includes: lunch and childcare (children under 5) for both days.
