This conference, provided by Grace Community Church and The Elisha Foundation, is intended to blend the great resource and benefit of a conference with a more personal and intimate environment. Pursuant to that we are coordinating a schedule that allows for time to connect with other parents and caregivers in attendance as well as time to talk with our speakers.

Biblical counseling will be offered by pastors and lay people trained in biblical counseling. The breakout sessions and counseling opportunities are optional. Access for either of these services will be made available through individual sign ups at the start of the conference.

We trust you will enjoy this conference!
