Starting a Church-Based Foster Care Ministry

Churches of all sizes can create meaningful ministry to serve the 400,000 children in the US foster care system.  This webinar will explore the nuts and bolts for doing so, including effective ways to raise awareness within a church about the needs of children in the foster system and engage volunteers to surround and encourage foster/adoptive families.  The webinar will highlight proven methods for gathering a core leadership team and gaining church staff support.  Other topics include: support groups, respite nights, training events, working with emancipated youth and more. Bruce & Denise Kendrick helped launch Embrace at a small church in Dallas, and have seen that churches of any size can be effective in meeting the deepest needs of foster youth.
