The Empowered to Connect Conference is a two-day event presented by Show Hope.

To Attend Event


Experience practical teaching in a safe and supportive community as we work to equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care.


This year’s conference includes Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, which exists to bring attachment and connection in families. The nationwide participation in the Empowered to Connect Conference is a testament to the impact and work of Dr. Karyn Purvis. Read more about her legacy of hope and healing here.


What can I bring into the event?

Bring a pen!

These are full days! What about lunch?

There will be a break mid-day. Lunch is on your own - there are many options close by the church, or you are more than welcome to bring lunch if you prefer.

Snacks will be provided throughout the day, as well as tea and water.

I'm a foster parent, can this count toward training hours?

Yes! We will provide forms for you to fill out for your licensing coordinator to have this approved as training hours. There is a limit for training hours related to trauma, so you may want to check with your licensing coordinator first. I will be checking as well for more details and will update this section when I find out more!


How can I contact the organizer with any questions?



Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

no, this is not needed
