Disability Ministry

Everybody belongs, everyone serves! In our churches and communities, we should work to end the isolation of persons with disabilities and their families; to nurture the spiritual lives of people with disabilities so that they become professing and active members of their churches; and to encourage the gifts of people with disabilities so that they can serve God fully in their churches.
