Family Moments


Leadership Conference

- helping equip church leaders to care for and support adoptive and

foster families.

Audience and Lecturer

Joy in the Journey is thrilled to announce a new one-day event designed for ministry staff and church volunteers to learn how to better welcome and serve adoptive and foster parents throughout their parenting journey. 

Throughout the years we have heard many foster and adoptive parents talk about their desire for church leadership to be educated and equipped to better understand family dynamics, trauma, and strategies to partner with the family as a whole. 

More details coming soon! 


Until then, there are two ways you can help us prepare for our new Church Leadership Conference:

1. Help us understand your experience in the church as an adoptive and foster parent. Fill out this anonymous survey to help us give an accurate representation of ways that church leaders can better serve and support adoptive and foster families. 

2. Are you or someone you know interested in educating and speaking to church staff and volunteers about how to equip and support foster and adoptive families? We are looking for speakers for our new Church Leadership Conference! Please fill out this online application by April 30th.
