Become a Church that Welcomes and Embraces People with Disabilities

People of all abilities need a church where they can fully belong.

Let us help you identify and remove barriers that impact people with disabilities. Develop a church culture that sees all people as indispensable parts of the Body of Christ, created in God’s image, and worthy of dignity and respect.

“In fact some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary” (I Corinthians 12:22, NLT).
