2023 Learning Modules
With new faces, new stories, and new insight, the 2022 Hope for the Journey Conference will structurally mirror the 2022 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.

Each host can provide certificates of completion after participants view the final session. The conference host will need to sign the certificate.
