Empowered To Connect, together with Show Hope, hosts the Empowered To Connect Simulcast — a two-day conference designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders, churches, and professionals better understand how to connect with “children from hard places” in order to help them heal and become all that God desires for them to be. Alabama Baptist Children’s Homes is excited to be a host site in Birmingham for this year’s simulcast!

Receiving Credit

At our host site in Birmingham, everyone in attendance will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of each day. If you are attending as a foster/adoptive family through Alabama Baptist Children’s Homes, please note that the Empowered to Connect conference will be accepted as Continuing Education Credits (CEC). If attending as a parent through another agency, receiving CEC credits for this training is at the discretion of your agency, and you will need to contact them for approval. 

*Please note: Social workers and agency professionals seeking CE credits for attending this simulcast will also need to register with Show Hope, in addition to your ABCH registration. CE credits are for licensed professionals only and are not the same as those of adoptive/foster training credits.
