8 pm ET | 7 pm CT | 6 pm MT | 5 pm PT
Led by Ashley Belknap, Director of Engaging Disability With The Gospel
What is the role of the ruling elder in the overall picture of disability ministry? This is a common question among elders who want to see their church do more to enfold and disciple members with disabilities.
In this online training, we will explore what organic, gospel-centered disability ministry can look like in your church context. Since each church has its own distinct characteristics, culture, and special family needs, disability ministry take on various forms.
We will discuss ways ruling elders can help every ministry area in the church love, support, and encourage families living with disability. Whether you want to learn more about disabilities, discipleship or how to minister more effectively to families in your church, this meeting is a great place to start.
Topics we will cover:
- Understanding disability from a biblical perspective
- Understanding the effects of disability on discipleship and relationships
- Organic, gospel-centered disability ministry for every size church
- The role of the ruling elder in disability ministry
