Hope for the Journey Conference
Founded in 2003 by Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman, Show Hope exists to care for orphans by engaging the Church and reducing barriers to adoption. Check out their website
Children impacted by adoption and/or foster care often have unique, sometimes complex needs, stemming from the impacts of trauma and loss. The annual Hope for the Journey Conference sheds more light on those needs and equips parents, caregivers, church communities, and professionals with practical tools to care more holistically for the children entrusted to them.
The conference includes research-based tools to promote attachment and connection in families such as Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) methods developed by Drs. Karyn Purvis and David Cross at the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU. TBRI is a care model designed to help meet relational and developmental needs of children and youth impacted by trauma.
Outlined by Show Hope, the Hope for the Journey Conference also explores the gospel as foundational to TBRI and how churches and organizations can better support children and families in their ministries and communities.
The Hope for the Journey Conference is modular in nature, and could be consumed in one day or shared over multiple training sessions or weeks. Structurally, the conference includes 4 learning modules based on the principles of TBRI along with a fifth component, The Gospel + TBRI. Also included with each module is a “Going Deeper” teaching video on a select topic as well as a “Practical Perspective” video featuring the voices of adoptive and/or foster families or adult adoptees and/or foster youth alum. (The first four teaching modules are approximately 90 to 100 minutes each, and the fifth teaching module is approximately 60 to 70 minutes.)
