2015 Workshops

Special Needs: A New Normal


“Individuals and families affected by special needs to through a grieving process. Life has not turned out the way they had hoped and dreamed. Often, grief is not recognized or identified for the individual and or family to move forward. Come learn how to identify the various cycles of grief, learn strategies for walking an individual or family through the cycles to help them to discover a New Normal.

Special Needs: Ages and Stages of Special Needs Ministry


Children who have special needs grow up to be teens and adults who have special needs. As they grow the methods and ministries must grow too. In Ages and Stages we will identify major transitions, ways to minister in these transitions, critical issues to address and procedures to implement to continue to minister with individuals who have special needs and their families.

Special Needs: A Place for All in the Kingdom of God


“Individuals with special needs and their families are often disconnected and isolated from their community. They need to know there is a place for them in the Kingdom of God. Come discover ways for your church to reach, teach, and minister to children, youth and adults with special needs and their families; learn how to be an extension of God's grace in their world.”
