Special Needs: Up Front and Personal: Church, Culture and Community from a Disability Perspective


Do churches unintentionally create barriers instead of open doors to persons affected by disability? How can our churches provide a welcome, safe learning and worshipping environment for children and adults with special needs? Bring your questions and concerns to this dynamic panel of Christians from the disabled community. Moderated by Bonnie Bjerre, Bay Area Director of Joni and Friends.
