This year I have the privilege of presenting at the clergy and laity sessions of the West Ohio Annual Conference. The topic of my presentation will be ministry with people with disabilities.
Because it’s simply impossible to say everything I’d like to say in a 30-minute presentation, I’ve included some supplemental resources here. This includes source citations, videos shown during the presentation, and other resources that might be helpful for people who are interested in engaging in this kind of ministry.
You can find sources for the statistics I cited at The Inclusive Church and Disabilities and Faith.org.
Here are the presentation videos:
Stillwater UMC Special Friends Ministry
Huber Heights Sulphur Grove UMC “Gentle Worship”
Jean Vanier: Seeing God In Others
And here are some other very helpful resources:
