You’re invited to join us at The Refresh Conference!
We understand what it’s like to raise kids who come from traumatic pasts. We know firsthand what it’s like to make the sacrifices. To be weighed down with shame and sheer exhaustion. We know. We are right there with you. That’s why we started Refresh back in 2011.
Some people say Refresh shouldn’t be called a conference because it really is more of an experience. And you know what? They might be right. So call it whatever you want, but just come and check it out.
Come join more than a thousand people who truly get it. They get you. You don’t have to explain a thing. Come join us and be encouraged by amazing worship, fellowship, and teaching. Be equipped by expert trainings in the stuff that matters most to you. Lastly, be REFRESHED by hundreds of volunteers who want nothing more than to see the light come back on in your eyes, the spring in your step to return, and the hope to fill your heart. You can do this. We can do this. Come and be refreshed.
You are not alone, -Andrew and Michele Schneidler -Wendy and Greg Dennis -Dan and Kathleen Hamer
The annual Refresh Conference is a product of the orphan care initiative at Overlake Christian Church. A group of passionate foster and adoptive parents, along with agency and ministry members of the Harvest Hands Alliance, came together to design a one-of-a-kind conference focused on reigniting hope in the hearts of parents who are caring for the fatherless.
