Pastors, staff and volunteers are all welcomed to our annual special needs ministry training event.

Saturday, March 2, 2019 at Valley Springs Church in Roseville, CA. Doors open at 8:00 am.

Could your church be doing better at welcoming people with disabilities? We’re here to assist you. Our Mission is rooted in the Gospels where we observe Jesus ministering primarily to the disadvantaged, and especially those with physical and cognitive challenges.

Whether your church is considering a Special Needs Ministry or wanting to improve upon an existing one, this Conference has something beneficial to offer everyone.

Integrating People Affected by Disability Into the Life of the Church, because…

  • Everyone is created in the image of God and deserving of His love and salvation
  • Redemption is a gift to all; a gift that is not dependent on a certain level of ability
  • The church is complete only when ALL of God’s children are included.

The cost includes continental breakfast, buffet lunch, all sessions and materials. Space is limited to 75 people.
