Are you considering adoption? What questions do you have regarding the process of adoption? Herbie Newell, president of the largest Evangelical Christian adoption agency in America, talks about all things adoption with Ken and Deb in the Morning. Herbie focuses on the current need for adoptive parents and how to begin the adoption journey. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover how God may be calling you to be the answer to a child’s prayer.
Should your church have an orphan care ministry? How does caring for orphans help us learn about God in new and unique ways? Dr. Todd Chipman is calling the church to action on behalf of children who need a loving home. Todd was adopted himself and is now a father of adopted children and joins Ken and Deb to share his story and what he’s learned about caring for God’s young image-bearers. Todd underscores how much is at stake if we do not participate in this history-changing and eternity sharing work of adoption.
