PARENTING

We believe that parents are the primary nurturers of their children’s faith and that our church plays a supportive role by partnering with parents in equipping them to do just that. Calvary's goal is to grow spiritually-healthy families, fostering a new generation of kids and parents who are actively pursuing a relationship with God.

TBRI: Trust-Based Relational Intervention Parent Training

The TBRI course is designed for those who are already foster and adoptive parents and grandparents. TBRI equips parents with a holistic understanding of their child's needs and development while empowering them with the tools and strategies to effectively meet those needs, build trust, and help their child heal and grow. The training is taught from a Christian perspective and focuses on a wide range of topics and issues relevant to adoptive and foster parents, including helping parents understand the impact of their child's history, what they themselves bring to the parent-child relationship, the fundamentals of attachment, the impact of fear, and the importance of meeting their child's sensory processing, nutritional and other physiological needs.
