Speaking and Training

Our staff at Lifeline is comprised of passionate and experienced ministry leaders and professionals who desire to share their knowledge and expertise with you, your church staff, other network professionals, etc. Below is a picture and brief bio for staff that you may wish to invite to share with your congregation on the needs of, and ministry to, orphaned and vulnerable children. In addition, you will find several professionals who are available for specialized trainings relating to: caring for children from hard places, wrapping around families who are adopting or fostering, and a host of other trainings focused on attachment and/or medical special needs.
