If you are thinking about or working toward starting a ministry for families with special needs at your church, the first thing I have to say to you is “HOORAY!!” You probably feel overwhelmed and maybe even scared, but you are not alone. There is truly a movement happening around the US as churches recognize the great need to be able to welcome every person who comes through their doors. There is no such thing as a special “calling” to serve these families — our “call” is to make disciples of all the nations and show Christ’s love to everyone. It just takes a little extra manpower and effort to make disciples of individuals who move, learn or act differently.
