Taught by Ashley Belknap, Director
Deacons are uniquely positioned to serve families with disabilities. Often, deacons are on the front lines of mercy ministry and taking care of the church building – two important aspects for consideration in disability ministry. Yet many deacons have not considered how their responsibilities impact families living with disability.
This online training will examine existing diaconal roles in ministry and explore the natural application of their labors of love to families touched by disability.
Topics we will cover:
- The multifaceted role of the deacon in disability ministry
- Physical accessibility considerations for churches
- Mercy ministry and caring for families that have unique needs
