A Seat at the Table: Embracing Individuals with Disability

Saturday, 11:00 – 11:50am

Did you know…. individuals and families living with disability are New England’s largest unreached people group? This workshop will focus on God’s heart for disability and ways to become known as a place to belong – where every person with a disability finds hope, dignity, and their place in the body of Christ. You will learn how to assess cultural readiness and intentional next steps to take. Joni and Friends’ disability ministry resources will be provided.
