Urgency & Complexity: Biblical & Ethical Approaches to the Orphan Crisis

Join us October 17-18 in Greenville, South Carolina for Together for Adoption 2014.

Our primary objective for this year’s gathering is to maximize our time together by providing important conversations with people who are key leaders, thinkers, and practitioners in the global orphan movement. We want to facilitate extended conversations that matter — conversations that uniquely address the complex spectrum of care needed for orphans globally. This year’s conference theme is Urgency & Complexity: Biblical & Ethical Approaches to the Orphan Crisis. If you join us, you’ll leave Greenville having thought deeply and biblically about family preservation and reunification, indigenous and international adoption, foster care, and domestic adoption.

This year’s general session topics include:

“The Gospel of Adoption as Family Reunification” (Dan Cruver)

“The Church’s Role in Family Preservation, Reunification, and Adoption” (Jedd Medefind)

“Balancing the Scales: Protecting and Defending the Fatherless in Our Own Communities” (John Sowers)

“Child Catchers or The Hands and Feet of Jesus? How Everyday Christians Can Engage in the Complex World of Orphan Care” (Brandon Hatmaker)

“Orphan Care & Adoption Together: How Those on Both Sides of the Fence Can and Must Work Together”

“Where Do we Go from Here? The Future of the Church and the Global Orphan Crisis” (Jason Kovacs)

Each general session talk is followed by a 20 minute onstage conversation in which leaders within the evangelical orphan care and adoption movement discuss the topic and its implication for orphan care and adoption.

We will announce our speakers soon.
