389 Creating and Sustaining a Special Needs Ministry
A recent Christianity Today article confirmed that less than 30% of churches in America have a special needs ministry. This class is a first step towards helping local congregations to evaluate their readiness for a special needs ministry, start and sustain a special needs ministry, and learn some of the basics of ministering to special needs children and their families. Pastor Michael Herbert, Dean of NYSB, and Tanya Velardo, Children's Director at Renaissance Church, will facilitate this class. Each week there will be a special guest speakers presenting information in their areas of competency in special needs ministry.
