Alliance Webinar Series
The Christian Alliance for Orphans Webinar Series is designed to help individuals like you create and grow effective adoption, foster care and global orphan ministry in local churches.
Date: Wednesday, August 31, 2011 Time: 1:00 PM Central
Topic: Transracial Adoption: Becoming a Multicultural/Multiracial Family
Host Church: Bethlehem Baptist Church
Presenters: Maridel Sandberg, Bethlehem Baptist Church & Jaclyn Skalnik, Bethany Christian Church
This webinar will highlight both joys and challenges of expanding a family through trans-racial adoption—including social understandings of race, ethnicity, nationality and culture. We will explore both positive and difficult issues related to the life-long consequences of adoption, and offer tangible suggestions to help a church community embrace and support multi-racial families.
Each 60-minute webinar in this series will give local advocates access to the knowledge and experience of top Alliance member churches and organizations nationwide, covering key topics on adoption, foster care and/or global orphan care. Every webinar will be hosted by a local church orphan ministry and co-presented by one or more national experts on the subject matter. This pairing will deliver a combination of specialist information and resources alongside a “here’s how it works in a real church” perspective.
