Announcing T4A House Conferences

by Dan Cruver Published Mar 16, 2011

We are excited to announce that we are launching a new initiative at the end of this month: House Conferences. Our house conference initiative is an effort to bring teaching on God’s story of adoption and its implications for the global orphan crisis to living rooms in select cities across the United States. Obviously, not everyone can fly across the country to attend a T4A conference. So, in part, our house conference initiative aims to “bring a T4A conference to a living room near you . . . for free.” (there will be no charge to attend these events!). We have already scheduled house conferences to be held in Phoenix (March 24 and 28), Houston, NW Arkansas, and yes, Greenville, SC (more cities will be added soon). Here’s a little information about our house conferences:

Objective: Deliver the theology of adoption (and its implications for orphan care) through face-to-face connections (“theology in your living room”). Note: each House Conference will be video live-streamed. Stay tuned for details.

Format: 20-20-20

- 20 minutes of teaching: The Story Behind the Story of Adoption – Sparking the Conversation
- 20 minutes of discussion: In-House Interviews – Continuing the Conversation
- 20 minutes of questions: Online Questions (via twitter, email, Facebook) – Expanding the Conversation

Our hope is to use house conference to spark continuing conversations about orphan care that move Christians/churches toward greater collaboration and implementation. Why will these conferences be hosted in homes? Because the orphan crisis is something that Christians should grapple with in their living rooms. It should be that personal to us.

We will be providing more information about house conferences the beginning of next week. Also, our first two house conferences this coming March 24th and 28th in Phoenix will be a great introduction to the March 30th webinar that I will be doing for the Christian Alliance for Orphans (the webinar will be a more in-depth look at what I will discuss in Phoenix). You can sign up for the Christian Alliance for Orphans’ webinar here.

Stay tuned for house conference details!
