The mission of Special Needs Ministries is to bring all members into the work of Christ. In order to promote full inclusion of members with disabilities, it is important to focus on each person’s abilities, talents, and relationship with God. Special Needs Ministries blends the services of those with a disability with those who do not have a disability into a bond of ministry, each returning to God the talents and gifts He has bestowed.
Special Needs Ministries does not stand alone. Rather, it supports every other ministry because people with special needs should be involved in every ministry in the church. The church should view Special Needs Ministries as an artery that carries life-giving blood to the entire church body.
The commission of Jesus Christ compels us to lead others to accept Him as personal Savior, to unite with His church, and nurture them in preparation for His soon return. There are no exceptions to this commission, and this Special Needs Ministries booklet provides specific ways in which the local church may become truly and fully inclusive it its mission.
