Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children


Foster Family Training Event

Foster Family Training Event

Foster Family Training Events are for active foster parents.

Upcoming family training events will minister to foster parents, kids.

"Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me." Mark 9:37 (ESV)

To celebrate and encourage the many families who have opened their hearts and homes to foster children, several Southern Baptist Churches across the state are inviting foster families to participate in foster parent training while their children enjoy quality, age-appropriate activities. While the children are in their own learning time, the parents will receive required annual foster care training (approved by DHS) from a Christian perspective.
