2020 Workshops

Special Needs: Having a Heart for the Disabled and Our Role as the Church

3/6/2020 9:00 - 10:15 a.m. Room: WC 200

When people ask about Gods view of people with disabilities, the answer should be quite simple: look at the church…look at the spiritual representation of God on this Earth, look at the spiritual leaders of our communities. The church and a person’s faith have a profound impact on their mental and emotional well-being. Many studies reveal that when faith is included in wellness planning, individuals experience shorter recovery times, fewer hospitalizations, and fewer relapses. Faith is the cornerstone of personal wellness and self-care, particularly for special needs parents.

In this workshop, we will explore tangible ways on how to do life with our friends living with disability,how to provide and promote services and outreaches, and how to accelerate Christian ministry in our disability community.
