We’re looking for some families willing to share their stories to help Key Ministry help churches.
Our current teaching series on the impact of ADHD on spiritual development is part of Key Ministry’s ongoing efforts to help churches serve, welcome and include families of kids with hidden disabilities. We’re confident the information to be shared will be helpful, but we won’t have the impact we hope for without a little help from some friends.
We’re looking for parents of kids with ADHD (and/or other hidden disabilities) who would be willing to share from their experiences in trying to “do” church. Because Jesus often used stories to teach, many of the leaders in “church world” we’re trying to influence will find stories from parents far more compelling than my data or our ministry team’s training resources.
Answers to the following questions would be very helpful. Please feel free to respond in writing in the comments section below, or better yet, if you have a video camera and would like to respond, post your video to a publicly accessible site (you Tube, Vimeo etc.) we can link to. If you’d prefer anonymity, we can post comments without identifying information.
If you or your child have ADHD or some other “hidden disability,”
What experiences have you had of a church helping you to grow in faith, helping your child or family to grow in faith, or helping to meet an immediate need?
What experiences have you had with churches that weren’t helpful, reflecting negatively upon Christianity?
What would you like to share with Senior Pastors, Children’s/Youth Pastors or church leaders to help them other families affected by ADHD?
