2014 Workshop

Special Needs: Building a Special Needs Ministry Team


Accommodating a child with autism can be a game-changer for an entire church staff, and every church needs to be prepared. With planning and program parameters everyone can experience success. We'll walk through the various issues a church’s leadership team may need to consider as they determine their church’s unique calling and capability for disability accommodation. We will talk about developing a job description for a special needs ministry coordinator while offering ways the church can inspire and equip lay leader champions. Best practices will be shared for instilling a sound culture for risk management and program longevity.
