Welcoming People with Disabilities in the Church

Salem’s Thrive Ministry invites you to take advantage of an excellent online training offered by Joni and Friends on Welcoming People with Disabilities in the Church. This course is being offered at a greatly reduced cost of $5, rather than the standard cost of $75. During this time when many of us are working remotely and/or our volunteers might be more available, it is a great time to access this online training. This course is an excellent training for church staff and volunteers, regardless of what area of ministry they work in because welcoming those with disabilities applies to everyone in the church.

Below are a brief description and link to the course. This is a limited time offer.

Welcoming People with Disabilities in the Church

This course will equip you and your church with practical tools for including people of all abilities into the life and ministry of your church and help people with disabilities find their place in the body of Christ. This course incorporates material from our 12 Irresistible Church books and covers topics such as the biblical view of disability, disability awareness, creating accessibility, adapting curriculum, worship, recruiting and training volunteers, behavior management, and more. There are also a wide variety of resources available as you move through the course.

For people working full-time, the course is designed as a four-week class, approximately 3-4 hours per week. However, participants can create their own individualized schedule and move through the course at their own pace, based on their availability and the depth in which they engage the information. Joni and Friends staff will also be available by phone or email as an additional resource to the course.
