/ thursday, 11 february
The Global Forum for a World Without Orphans is fast approaching. We have a dynamic program designed especially for you. You will be encouraged, enlightened and inspired as you collect stories, experiences and ideas which will bring new hope to family based orphan care. The program will be divided into two parts: Start Sessions and Choice Sessions
START (General) Sessions
Strategic, Transforming, Activating, Refreshing, and Timely
The Forum will bring to the platform speakers who are experts in their field and leaders who have made a major impact with the orphan movement across the globe. Each speaker will share exciting information and ideas in one of five Forum Cornerstones: God, Child, Family, Church and Movement.
The purpose of each START speaker is to challenge:
- Becoming Strategic in all you do
- Transforming you or your work to a movement of excellence
- Activating your ideas by cultivating your confidence
- Refreshing you to stand boldly and make a difference
- Being Timely – as this is the time for the church to MOVE with James 1:27
- It is time to START!
START sessions will also include inspiring songs, powerful videos, amazing testimonies, dynamic panel discussions, and engaging teamwork in tables groups.
