Engaging Disability With The Gospel, the denominational disability ministry for the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), is offering free online training for pastors, elders, deacons, church staff, volunteers, and families. Our training is distinctly reformed, yet oriented towards practical ministry. Join us as we discuss adaptations, accommodations, and discipleship.
The following online training sessions follow a one-hour teaching and discussion format with Q&A at the end of each training. These training sessions are designed to benefit both the church and the family and are open to all who would like to attend.
We are also offering online training specifically designed for pastors, ruling elders, and deacons.
