CONNECTIONS AND CONVERSATIONS: A GOSPEL-CENTERED, DISABILITY-FOCUSED BOOK CLUB FOR FAMILIES
Families living with disability often find it challenging to connect with others who really understand the impact of disability on everyday life. Join our new monthly book club, Connections and Conversations, for real encouragement alongside others who love and care for someone who has a disability.
If you enjoy reading, discussion, and connecting with others—without ever leaving home—this book club is for you!
- Each month we discuss one gospel-centered, disability-focused book.
- The book club time includes teaching and discussion on key points in the book.
- You can purchase the book and read beforehand OR simply join us for the conversation.
- The book club is on the 3rd Monday of each month. Choose either the morning or evening session.
- Join the group via a free, live Zoom conference call from any computer, tablet, or phone.
Invite your friends and family. Grab a cup of coffee, and prepare to be encouraged! Remember, you don’t have to read the book ahead of time.

Teacher: Ashley Belknap, Director of Engaging Disability With The Gospel
In order to multiply the work of disability ministry in your church and sustain ministry to families impacted by disability, at some point, you will likely consider establishing a disability ministry team. This online training is designed to help you move from the stage of ministry where you are organically meeting needs within your congregation, to a more formally organized ministry that can even more effectively meet the needs of families impacted by disability. The information in this training will be applicable to every size church.
Topics we will cover:
- Deciding when it is time to develop a team
- Developing a vision and purpose for the team
- Recruiting team members
- Training and launching your team into ministry
