CNA Staff, Feb 23, 2021 / 03:16 pm (CNA).- The world’s largest pregnancy help organization is preparing for its 50th annual training conference, with both virtual and in-person options.

The Heartbeat International Conference will take place in Columbus, Ohio, from April 27-30.

The theme of the event is “Essential,” emphasizing that everyone has a crucial role to play in the pro-life mission.

“Because this mission is so critical and each and every one of you is essential to this mighty calling, we are committed to providing a training conference that both equips and encourages you,” the organization said.

“Therefore, we are hosting an In-Person Conference experience and a virtual conference event – two conferences, simultaneously – fusing the learning concepts and reaching more people with the insights and inspiration our Heartbeat Conference provides each year.”

The conference will feature training sessions directed at pro-life advocates and volunteers for pregnancy help centers, medical clinics, adoption agencies, and maternity homes. It is also aimed at professionals in medicine, education, mental health, and social work.

Those interested in attending can choose from virtual and in-person options, as well as an in-person bundle option that includes an in-depth day. Prices for attendance range from $199 to $799.

The conference includes professional discussions, full-day training sessions, and workshop presentations by ministry experts. Each in-person workshop will involve two sub-sessions.

“Our conference offers the most dynamic training to equip ministers and empower ministries worldwide in the pregnancy help community through the largest international Pregnancy Help Conference, this year both in-person and online,” the organization said on its website.

Heartbeat International is the largest network of pregnancy help in the world. It provides services to more than 2,800 pregnancy help centers globally.
