ESTABLISHED – Children’s Ministry Conference: Olathe, Kansas
September 21 - September 22
Engaging Disability is excited to be part of this conference!
All Together: Teaching the Bible to Children of All Abilities– We want all our children to learn God’s Word and grow in their understanding of who God is and what He has done for us through the gospel. Children with special needs often learn very differently than their peers. How can teachers simultaneously address a wide range of learning needs in the classroom? And without spending hours prepping? This workshop will focus on strategies to adapt and teach the Bible to students of all levels of ability without “dumbing down” content and compromising what our children need most: God’s Word.
Discipleship, Disability, and a Gospel-Centered Understanding of Behavior– Our goal in Children’s Ministry is the effective discipleship of all our children. How is discipleship in kids with special needs different and the same as in others? Some children with disabilities (and some without) often exhibit challenging behavior. What part does disability play in their actions or does it? How can we understand their behaviors, and what do you do when you encounter these challenges at church? In this workshop, we will examine behavior through the lens of the gospel and discuss methods of implementing positive behavior strategies and supports that enhance the discipleship of all our children.
If you are interested in a special needs ministry consultation on Friday before the main conference, be sure to include that in your registration.
