LIVE VIEWING – Hope for the Journey Conference: Chippewa Falls

April 14 @ 9:00 am - 4:50 pm


WISAPSP is excited to partner with The Forgotten Initiate of the Chippewa Valley to offer an opportunity for individuals and families to attend this national virtual conference in-person on April 14, 2023. We will begin showing the simulcast at 9:00AM and welcome folks to register for the whole day or any part of it they can attend. Snacks and drinks will be available throughout the day, however lunch will be your responsibility. Please plan to bring a lunch or make arrangements to go purchase a lunch during the break.

The Hope for the Journey Conference will equip parents and caregivers meeting the everyday needs of children impacted by adoption and foster care, and further resource churches in their endeavors to be beacons of hope and encouragement for families in their congregation and surrounding communities.

With new faces, new stories, and new insight, the 2023 Hope for the Journey Conference will structurally mirror previous conferences with five high-level, more focused learning modules as well as opportunities to go deeper on select topics within each module topic. We will also hear from families and individuals impacted by adoption and/or foster care—whether as parents or adult adoptees and foster care alumni. And finally, the Hope for the Journey Conference will also continue to build on TBRI principles and how those principles intersect with our faith.

Special hosts at the conference will include Show Hope Founders, Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman, along with Show Hope’s Executive Director Kristin Parks. Long-time affiliate organizations and partners, including the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU and Empowered to Connect, will also be sharing teaching, insight, and practical application aimed at parents and families.

Please note: This is a faith-based conference put on by the non-profit organization, Show Hope. For more information on the conference content, visit –
