2013 Workshops

Special Needs: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made; A Pastor's perspective about how local churches can intentionally include and reach out to a people affected by disabilities.

3/8/2013

As the pastor of a growing congregation, Jim thought he was adequately addressing the needs of people with disabilities. Then his daughter was diagnosed with a debilitating genetic disorder. As her health declined, he became painfully aware of how ill-equipped he and his church were to effectively care for those suffering with disabilities. His perspective changed, and his congregation began to develop a new compassion for families with special needs. Come hear the story of his family and learn the perspective-changing truths that prepare a church for disability ministry.
