Fostering Hope Ministry Coordinators
I thank my God every time I remember you. ~Philippians 1:3
Welcome Ministry Coordinators!
Thanks for checking out the latest news and updates for your ministry and church. We’ll keep this page updated with downloadable materials, meeting dates, and news for you and for your ministry. Stop by regularly! We’ll keep you in the know!
Next FHA Meeting: Fall 2017. Rather than meeting as a group over the summer, FHA will reach out to ministry coordinators and pastors to have a lunch or coffee one-on-one. We want to catch up and hear what is going on with your ministry!
Registration for the May 6th babysitting certification is closed. Later in May we will announce another round of babysitting certification in the Fall 2017
We need people to pray for 300 new foster families at 3:00 everyday! Under the Resources section are prayer card pdfs and FB images you can post. If you need a way for everyone to engage during Orphan Sunday or during November Adoption Month, use the prayer cards!
Know People Interested in Fostering? 2nd Tuesday of Each Month
Send them to the DFPS Orientation held monthly at the DFPS Summit offices or Bannockburn Church. FHA Mentors are at the meetings available to talk with people and it is a quality presentation.
Start Planning for Fall 2017
It’s not too early to start planning for fall activities at your church. Keep in mind these needs in our community: Support groups, parent night outs, training for post-placement families and ways for people to engage in support roles. Let us know if we can help with resources or facilitating planning for any of these kinds of events. Nov 12 is Orphan Sunday if your church recognizes this event. The CAFO website has Orphan Sunday resources and various videos for you to use anytime. https://cafo.org/orphansunday/resources
What is a Ministry Coordinator?
A FHA Ministry Coordinator is the first step in becoming a FHA Partner Church. They commit to becoming trauma-informed through one of the many opportunities FHA provides, and they start the conversation with others in their church who might also want to get involved. FHA connects with this person as the liaison to the rest of their church, to give them timely information, best-in-class resources and local opportunities. Contact us today at [email protected] to start the process to become your church’s FHA Ministry Coordinator.
