Meeting with Leadership
We will join you for a phone call, video chat meeting, or an in-person meeting to discuss with your leadership the value and practical logistics of welcoming people with varied abilities in your congregation.
Do you have a situation that you know you need to work to improve? We can observe behaviors, settings, and scenarios in person or through recorded video to offer you suggestions and a plan forward.
We will work with the children in your children’s ministry or youth group to help them understand and include a specific individual with unique gifts and needs. This may include providing information to peers and families that honors and celebrates the individual, leading age-specific activities that increase understanding among peers, and discussing steps forward.
Training Staff & Volunteers
We offer a variety of workshops and training topics. You can also request a specific topic and we’ll build training around the needs of your community. See our page on workshops & trainings to get started!
Setting up & Equipping a Community Team
We are available to help support your church as you get to know an individual or family with unique needs and gifts, as well as offer support as you rally the community in tangible ways, with attainable tasks to support them and be blessed by them!
Follow-Up and Support
Not sure how to move forward? We are here to offer assistance and support as your congregation takes steps toward inclusion!
Our special education experts focus on helping you understand the areas of gift and need around those who experience disabilities in your church and offer individualized support to help you create inclusive and interdependent communities in your congregation.
Creating Action Plans
We will come alongside your church to create an action plan for including a specific individual or persons within your community.
Worship Service Planning
As you’re planning a worship service where you want to focus on disability, we can help you prepare or present:
- Scriptural support and teachings related to inclusion and the gifts each person has to give
- Written materials for readings, litanies, prayers, and devotions
- Children’s messages on including and honoring each individual
These services and more are all included in our partner membership!
