Empowered to Connect is a conference sponsored by Show Hope to provide practical teaching for anyone who provides care for kids with any kind of trauma. Featuring presentations on Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI) methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU to help bring attachment and connection in families. 


This conference was set to be offered this weekend. Given recent events, we are clearly not able to offer this conference on site at the church. HOWEVER, we have the amazing opportunity to provide the conference to you to access from home, with the freedom to view it by May 31.  Please follow this link to register for this event.  The cost is only $10. You will receive a follow up email giving you further details. Please contact Erin Gildner ( with any questions.

Would you consider coming for these 2 days and sharing with your connections of pastors, parents, counselors, grandparents (they need support too), foster parents, soon-to-be-foster/adoptive parents?" –Pastor Dan
