Empower to Connect Simulcast
On April 27-28, Kingsview Church in Stoney Creek is hosting a simulcast of the Empower to Connect conference. This will provide practical teaching for individuals who would like to be better equipped to serve children impacted by adoption and foster care. This is a full two-day event that runs from 9:45am-6pm on both Friday and Saturday. Find more information or register here.
The conference features Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI) methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, to help bring attachment and connection in families. The content 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, counsellors, and therapists.
LEARN MORE ABOUT ADOPTION
Next day-long seminar coming in 2019.
Led by our Orphan Care Team, this DVD-based workshop goes into great depths about Biblical adoption, how to decide if God’s calling you to adopt, and what it practically looks like. Please watch the video below for more information.
Note: we ask you do not bring children along with you to the workshop.
SAFE FAMILIES CANADA
We are currently working with SAFE FAMILIES CANADA as a means to provide emergency temporary foster care in our community. A number of Harvest Families are in the training process to be a Host Family and we have had a number of child placements already.
If you would like to support this ministry financially, you can make an online donation here. 100% of the funds will go directly to offset the expenses of Host Families and donations are tax deductible.
