In addition to six general sessions, Together for Adoption Conference 2009 will have fourteen workshops. Here are several of the workshops we will be offering:

Moving from Success to Significance…becoming Orphan Advocates, Andy Lehman, LifeSong for Orphans – Many Christians today have t4a-nashville-conference-poster-pic great experience, expertise, and energy to serve the orphans and fatherless. This season of life is ripe to redirect time and skills for the Kingdom! This session will focus on how God can use Christian businesspeople and “everyday people” to become effective orphan advocates.

The Comfort that the Doctrine of Adoption Brings, Kevin Twit, Indelible Grace and T4A Conference Worship Leader – In this seminar we will explore the way adoption into God’s family should affect our hearts, and not just our heads.  In justification we become God’s friends, but in adoption we are brought into His family.  Come explore the important link between the doctrine of adoption and the assurance of our salvation.

Strengthening the Church by Engaging and Mobilizing for Orphan Care, Michael Vinson, World Orphans – What if the church needs the orphan as much as the orphan needs the church? Come to this session to learn about the greatest kingdom building opportunity in our lifetime. God has an army of 143,000,000 orphans strategically positioned throughout the least reached places on the earth. Come hear how you and your church are being called to respond.

Implementing a Balanced Orphan Care and Adoption Ministry in Your Church, Johnny Carr, Director of Church Partnerships for Bethany Christian Services – This session will help you think through the philosophy behind your ministry with practical suggestions for leading people to deeper involvement.  We will talk about educating and engaging everyone in the congregation, many in the congregation, and then a few in the congregation.  At each level, the education and engagement will get deeper and be more involved.  A sample calendar will be available to give you practical ministry ideas.  

Stewarding God’s Resources for Adoption, Jason Kovacs, ABBA Fund – For most couples, the greatest obstacle to adoption is the cost.  This session will look at a Biblical and practical perspective on how to fund an adoption.  We will cover God’s promises and provisions through interest-free adoption loans, tax-credits, grants, and creative fundraisers.  We will also look at the benefits of establishing local church adoption funds.

Conference registration opens this month.
