Steps You Can Take to Include People with Disabilities in Your Church
One of the places where families impacted by disability should feel most welcomed is at church. But when it comes to building an inclusive environment, people and churches often struggle with where to begin.
Today on the podcast, Crystal talks with two ministry experts, Liz Babbitt and Lauren Garner, who discuss what it means to really welcome someone with a disability. Listen as they talk through some of the barriers and challenges you may be facing at your church, and the first steps you can take to bridge the gap and include all people. When it comes to disability ministry, you don’t need to be an expert, you just need a willing heart.
Do you want your church to be a place of belonging? Do you want your church to be Irresistible?
An Irresistible Church is an authentic community built on the hope of Christ that compels people affected by disability to fully belong.
By creating inclusive environments churches help individuals affected by disability discover and practice the gifts God has given them while fostering a culture of authentic relationships.
