Send an adoptive or foster couple to Nashville for #ERLC2017

Next month, hundreds of parents and church leaders will gather in Nashville to learn how to teach their children truths about the gospel while living in our complex world. Parenting is hard for anyone, but we know those who choose to adopt or foster often face challenges the average parent cannot fathom.

Which is why we’ve decided to honor one adoptive or foster couple by bringing them to Nashville for the 2017 ERLC National Conference. But we need your help to do this.

On the form below, please nominate a couple in your life who is currently adopting or fostering children, and then write 300-500 words telling us why you think this couple deserves to be blessed in this way. We will accept nominations until July 31. The winners will be chosen the first week of August and travel plans will be accommodated by our Events team. We will only be able to bring a couple who lives within driving distance of Nashville.

The couple will recieve:

  • Reimbursement for gas to and from conference (Nominees must be within driving distance of Nashville)
  • 2 nights stay at the Opryland Hotel on August 24 and 25
  • 2 National Conference registrations
  • Gospel for Life book series complete set

Thank you for helping us honor adoptive and foster parents everywhere. Caring for children is a pro-life issue and we hope the couple who attends will walk away refreshed and equipped to do the task God has placed before them.

Nominations are now closed.
