Church with a Difference

This group focuses on improving ministry by, for, and with persons who live with disability or functional difference.

Since its inception in 2013, the group has offered support for parents, families, and persons with special needs, has planned church programs, and has hosted two conferences on faith communities and disabilities that drew participants from many congregations. The team seeks to heighten awareness of the theological implications of "being church" with a wide array of developmental and functional differences among us.
