The Ministry’s philosophy of Heartbeat is deliberately grassroots, bottom-up, innovative and entrepreneurial, said Jor-El Godsey, President of Heartbeat International. Through the annual conference, the organization seeks to highlight effective ministry efforts and provide opportunities for new ideas and innovative solutions to address long-standing familiar issues, he said.

“Our annual conference provides quality education and networking opportunities for leaders in the pregnancy support community,” Godsey said.

Heartbeat has once again committed to an annual conference with both an in-person and virtual aspect to continue to reach wider audiences around the world, he said.

“People are hungry for information, and we know you have valuable information that can help move the pregnancy-help movement forward,” Godsey said.

Presentations at Heartbeat’s Annual Pregnancy Support Conference are suitable for all levels of experience – basic, intermediate, advanced.

Presenters will deliver educational content lasting 60 minutes for one session, a mandatory stipulation for continuing education credits. Workshops will provide educational content and useful information to attendees in the presenter’s area(s) of expertise. Practices and takeouts must adhere to Heartbeat’s submission guidelines, which include refraining from promoting or soliciting support for the Presenter’s organization or its services.

After creating a workshop plan covering 60 minutes of educational content, potential presenters must complete the Heartbeat’s online submission form. Multiple workshop submissions must be submitted via separate forms. Selected presenters for the annual conference will be notified directly at the contact information provided in the submission.
