Disability Ministry Video Roundtable

Sandra Peoples is a special-needs sibling, special-needs mom, special-needs ministry leader, and a pastor’s wife. So when people ask her what they should expect from their church, she answers from her unique experiences. Can families expect too much? Should ministry leaders and pastors ever say no? Join us as we discuss this important topic!
