All Abilities Church Plant Spring Update 2020


Featured image for “All Abilities Church Plant Spring Update 2020”

Description of Ministry: Developing the ministry network through churches, para-church organizations, individuals and families. Additional planning stages now in process with Rev. Jim Boer (Monroe Community Church).

This year also includes special needs interviewing and family roundtable discussions regarding supports and resources needed. From there we are working to build community organizational connections for those supports.

In addition, we are officially connecting to the ministry Joni & Friends and have been asked to serve in the lead pastoral role for their regional family retreat for those with special needs – to be held at Maranatha this June, 2020.

Over the past weeks we have connected with additional families who have expressed interest in being part of the new church plant. One of them has committed to serve in an administrative support role immediately.

Right now we are in the planning stages with Joni & Friends and are in the process of special needs pastoral training through them.
