Together for Adoption Conference 2011

Together for Adoption:  Providing gospel-centered resources to mobilize the church for global orphan care. 

As written in Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living Through the Rediscovery of Abba Father, “To live missionally means to live each waking moment in light of the gospel so that it increasingly affects every part of our lives for the glory of God’s grace in our fallen world” (p 17). James 1:27 tells us that the practice of true religion necessarily involves caring for orphans in their distress. Therefore, to live missionally means that the Gospel is increasingly moving and empowering us to care for those who live on the razor-sharp edge of our world’s brokenness. Whether we are conscious of it or not, the Gospel is at the center of missional living and the evangelical orphan care movement.

Join us October 21-22 in Phoenix, AZ for Together for Adoption Conference 2011. Over 1,200 people will gather together at Redemption Church (Gilbert Campus) to explore the theme Missional Living, the Gospel and Orphan Care. One of our primary objectives for this year’s conference is to create a forum to consider the good news of the Gospel, explore its implications for how we think about and implement orphan care strategies, and discuss how we can move toward greater collaboration as the people of God for the sake of orphans worldwide.

General session speakers include: Darrin Patrick, Tullian Tchividjian, Tim Chester (coming to us from England), Bryan Loritts, Juan Sanchez, and Jeff Vanderstelt.

Early Bird Registration: $109 Per Person (good through August 31st)
Regular Registration: $149 Per Person (price from September 1 until October 21)
*Registration price includes two onsite lunches and afternoon snacks.

Note: Childcare is available. Infant through 6th grade is $25 per child for the entire conference.
Worship Leaders: Shaun Groves, Aaron Ivey, and Jimmy McNeal
