Including Kids with Special Needs in Your Youth Ministry
Did God make a mistake by creating people with disabilities? Why don’t we see more people with disabilities in our churches and youth ministries? If you had a child with a disability, would it change how you do youth ministry? There are more than 600 million people in the world with disabilities, and if they all lived in one nation, it would be the world's third largest and would lead the world in homelessness and poverty—and yet less than 10 percent of churches are ministering to people with disabilities. Please join us as we take an honest and compelling look at ministering with youth with disabilities.
