Special-Needs & Disability Ministry

 

I serve as the inclusion coordinator for special needs families for my church, work for the SBTC as their special needs ministry consultant, and speak at events across the country on the topic of disability ministry. I also write about special needs ministry from the perspective of a pastor’s wife and special-needs mom. Some of my most popular posts are linked below.

If you’re interested taking more steps toward inclusion at your church, I offer ministry coaching and teach a cohort through Gospel-Centered Family. Click here to learn more.

You can also learn more about All Access, a disability ministry conference I co-host in the Houston area each February. Our 2021 conference was all virtual, and the sessions are still available on Vimeo.

 

 

Are you ready to start a special needs ministry at your church? Or are you interested in strengthening your existing ministry? There are Three Phases of a Flourishing Disability Ministry, and I have free resources available to help you determine your next steps as a church!
