Every Child FAQs

What is the Every Child Symposium?

Every Child is a one-day conference designed to inspire the faith community in Indiana to answer Godís call to care for vulnerable children. It is a day full of inspiration, equipping, and practical ideas so that EVERYONE can do SOMETHING to make a difference in the lives of children in need in our communities. Our God-sized goal is that every child in Indiana is loved & supported.


Where is the Every Child Symposium?

Every Child will be held at the main campus of Eastern Star Church, located at 5750 30th Street, Indianapolis, IN.


Who is this conference best suited for?

Every Child is for anyone desiring to make a difference in the lives of at-risk children. It is for foster and adoptive parents, Safe Families host parents, kinship providers, church leaders & pastors, teachers, counselors, child advocates, and anyone exploring what it would look like to get involved.


Iím not a foster or adoptive parent. Why should I attend?

While there will be sessions geared toward foster and adoptive parents, there will also be sessions specifically designed for church ministry leaders, volunteers and those exploring ways to be involved other than hosting a child in their home.


Is training credit available for foster parents?

Yes. A certificate for up to 5.5 hours will be provided for anyone who requests it a registration. Turn in this and the program to your licensor.


Is there childcare available?

Childcare is not provided. While we love kids, we encourage you to find a babysitter in order to take advantage of the opportunity to learn and relax during the symposium.
