Foster the Connection 2020

Presenters Needed




Thank you for considering presenting at the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home- Foster the Connection Conference set for February 22, 2020. We are looking forward to reviewing your application. This conference is designed to offer practical suggestions and easy to apply ideas to take back to communities who have the calling to minister to foster families.  In other words—we want to SPREAD THE LOVE you are already giving! 

For presentations involving more than one presenter:one presenter must complete the main application form online while each co-presenter must be listed. The main presenter will be the point of contact for the team.

Speaker Reimbursements & Travel Expenses: Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home will provide lodging on the 21st at the Lee Hotel on the Tall Timbers camp site for presenters living more than 2 hours away from the venue.  Unfortunately we are unable to pay honorariums, speaker fees, per diem, travel expenses, or miscellaneous costs for any presenters at the conference. If you do not check the box requesting a room, we will assume one is not needed. Lunch will be provided on the day of the presentation. 

Application Due Date – November 1, 2019. Late applications will be considered if space is still available. Please apply at

Ministry Title – The title should be kept short, preferably no more than 10 words. The conference organizers may ask you to modify the title if necessary. 

Ministry Description – (140 word limit) The ministry description should be concise, but accurate, in its description of the presentation.  Most presentations will be granted 30-60 minutes max. Please note that Foster the Connection reserves the right to adjust titles and session descriptions.

Photo/LOGO – The photo you submit will be printed in our conference program and utilized on the website. We must have a high-resolution image. You must attach the photo as a separate file in jpeg format, saved as the ministry name. If the photo resolution does not meet our standards, we may request a new photo.

Additional Info – Applicants may apply to present as many ministries as they like, but will not be selected for more than two sessions. All ministries must pertain to or connect to the subject of serving families in foster care ministries. All presenters will be asked to attend the entire event and participate in the panel at the end of the day.  Handouts with practical tips and ministry starter ideas would be a huge bonus! Copies of the presentation will need to be submitted by Jan. 15.
