2018 SUMMIT - #whatisTRUE

Your premiere destination for Christ-centered teaching, ministry and networking for eating disorder professionals and anyone seeking a healthier relationship with food.


Hungry for Hope: #whatisTRUE

June 22-23, 2018

The Factory @ Franklin, TN

(20 min. from downtown Nashville)

Hungry for Hope is a one-of-a-kind ministry SUMMIT for those impacted by eating and body image issues, and those called to serve them. Featuring a unique fusion of clinical teaching, storytelling, worship and the arts, our next SUMMIT will inspire and equip counselors, lay leaders, and community members from all walks of life to join the Kingdom mission of bringing hope and healing to those seeking freedom from food issues.

If you are someone who is passionate about seeing people set free from eating issues, this SUMMIT is for you!!

Learn what is true about the intersection of FOOD, FAITH & FREEDOM, personally and professionally.

Understand how TRAUMA leads to internal "disconnection," and how to REINTEGRATE the innermost parts God created in you.

Discover the NEUROBIOLOGY of food, how it affects recovery/wellness, and how to approach eating with wisdom and balance.

Dare to DREAM about new ways God might use you to bring his hope to others!
