If You Were Mine Adoption Conference @ Green Acres Baptist Church

Green Acres Baptist Church did an incredible job hosting the If You Were Mine Adoption Conference this past weekend. Over 280 folks attended and many were touched by the heart of God in adoption and given practical tools to move forward in the journey. I encourage you to watch the promo video below to get a small taste of the conference.

This was a part of the Hope for 100 campaign currently going on at Green Acres, the first of many such campaigns to come around the country. The vision is to see 100 children cared for by church members through adoption or foster care! 

If you would like more information on Hope for 100 or about how you can start a similar campaign in your church please visit the website and/or contact us today!
