Led by Ashley Belknap, Director of Engaging Disability With The Gospel
As a teaching elder, are you considering how to more effectively love and enfold members and visitors living with disability into your congregation? Do you wonder whether the next step is a more organized disability ministry? Then, this online training is for you!
We will start by discussing the scope of disability ministry and its audiences. Disability ministry covers all ages, from children to senior adults, and it includes family members. Every ministry area of your church has opportunities to enfold and aid in the discipling of special-needs family members.
Through discussion and Q&A time, we will look at next steps that fit your church context and give insight into directions that disability ministry can go. Whether you are already intentionally ministering to people touched by disability or not, there are steps your church can take next Sunday! Steps that do not require a budget or more volunteers – just willing hearts to love people touched by disability.
As a pastor, you have a unique opportunity to set the tone and cast the vision in your congregation for organic disability ministry that strengthens all of the existing ministries of the church.
Goals for Our Online Training:
- Establish the framework and scope for gospel-centered disability ministry in your church context
- Explore ways to identify barriers and aspects of your church culture that may present challenges
- Examine the unique role of the pastor in disability ministry
- Discover how Engaging Disability With The Gospel can partner with you
