What’s Coming At Hope for the Journey Conference 2022

Hope for the Journey 2022

Show Hope’s inaugural Hope for the Journey Conference premiered April 9, 2021, with the aim of encouraging parents and caregivers meeting the everyday needs of children impacted by adoption and/or foster care. The conference serves as an opportunity to further resource churches in their endeavors to be beacons of hope and encouragement for families in their congregations and surrounding communities.

One of our favorite parts of the conference was the variety of perspectives presented throughout each of the five learning modules. From sessions led by professionals and practitioners to the powerful stories of adult adoptees, foster care alumni, and adoptive parents, the content was incredibly rich and practical. 

With new faces, new stories, and new insight, the 2022 Hope for the Journey Conference will structurally mirror this year’s conference with five high-level learning modules and opportunities to go deeper on select topics within each module topic. We will also continue to build on Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) principles and how those principles intersect with our faith. 

Learning Module 1: An Introduction to Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI)

Learning Module 3: Empowering Principles
