Special Needs Ministry

Bigger Fish to Fry!

Bigger Fish to Fry!

We need to learn what works for our family, and it’s not always us who can take the reins to start a ministry when our plates are so full with the needs before us. Thus, when a church has a ministry to special needs, the thinking and the work has been taken off our plate. We can embrace the opportunities before us, which lightens our load and helps us in this journey.

Janet Parshall...Disability Ministry Champion

Janet Parshall...Disability Ministry Champion

Janet's long history of advocacy for persons with disabilities isn't the only reason why I wanted her to have the opportunity to attend our conference and connect with the leaders and speakers in attendance. I knew Janet could speak into disability issues from the perspective of someone who has been there and done that.

A Conversation About The Cost Of Special Needs Ministry

A Conversation About The Cost Of Special Needs Ministry

Why your church needs to start a respite care ministry

Why your church needs to start a respite care ministry

We want to make it easy for any church to start a respite ministry to serve families of kids with disabilities. We’re delighted that the largest church-based respite care network in the U.S. is partnering with us to make that possible! Nathaniel’s Hope will be providing a day-long ministry intensive at Inclusion Fusion Live to provide the necessary training to churches seeking to launch new respite ministries.

The evangelicals I wish the world would see

The evangelicals I wish the world would see

The evangelicals I know care about the people and causes that Jesus cared about during his earthly ministry. They may not necessarily fit the narrative that many in the media would like to propagate about our community. I can’t help but think that evangelicals would have a very different image in our larger culture if more people had the opportunity to get to know some of the folks I was surrounded by during the last three days.

What I want for Christmas

What I want for Christmas

I have what I need this Christmas. What I want is for our Key Ministry team to have the resources to help families impacted by disability to find what they most need… a church where every member of the family might come to know Jesus and grow in faith in him.
