URGENCY & COMPLEXITY
Biblical & Ethical Approaches to the Orphan Crisis
Join us in Greenville, SC this year for this timely topic. This conference is for anyone considering adoption as well as anyone looking for a deeper more meaningful concept of adoption, theology, and how they both meet.
We are very pleased to announce a special honor will be given to Dan Cruver (co-founder, Together for Adoption) this year at the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institutes’s 2014 Ceremony.
U.S. Senator Tim Scott will be honoring Dan this year for Dan’s work in mobilizing churches for the care of vulnerable and orphaned children. The Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s (CCAI) Angels in Adoption™ Program honors individuals, couples, and organizations that have made extraordinary contributions on behalf of children in need of families. These heroes hail from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico and represent the wide spectrum of individuals involved in the adoption and foster care process.
Dan is being honored for his work in Together for Adoption which provides teaching, training, and other resources to local churches as well as globally through national and international conferences. T4A works to equip individuals, churches, and organizations theologically with the proper foundation and motivation of caring for orphaned and vulnerable children in our communities. Registration is currently open for this year’s National Conference.
From Senator Tim Scott’s website:
Dan Cruver, who lives with his wife Melissa and three children (two of whom are adopted) in Travelers Rest, SC, has worked tirelessly to help people open their hearts and homes to children in need. Cruver is the founder and director of Together for Adoption (T4A), which provides teaching, training, and other resources to local churches as well as globally through national and international conferences. T4A works to equip individuals, churches, and organizations theologically with the proper foundation and motivation of caring for orphaned and vulnerable children in our communities.
The Angels in Adoption program, through the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, provides a way for members of Congress to honor and thank those in their communities that work hard every day to help this very vulnerable population of young people.
Past recipients of this award include Korie and Willie Robertson, Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley, Ne-Yo, PEOPLE Magazine, Nia Vardalos, Scott Fujita, Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, First Lady Laura Bush, Kristin Chenoweth, Bruce Willis, Al Roker, Muhammad Ali, Patti LaBelle, Jane Seymour, Henry Winkler, and CBS Studios.
The honor comes this year just leading up to the annual Together for Adoption National Conference which is held in the Greenville, SC area this year. This year’s theme – URGENCY & COMPLEXITY, Biblical & Ethical Approaches to the Orphan Crisis – is perfectly in line with Dan’s passion to do everything possible to help the worldwide orphan crisis in a careful and theologically sound manner.
Congratulations, Dan, and we’re thrilled to see your efforts recognized by the state of South Carolina.
