Announcing our Keynote Speaker for Inclusion Fusion 2011…Chuck Swindoll

Our entire staff and volunteer team at Key Ministry is thrilled to announce that Chuck Swindoll has graciously accepted our invitation to serve as the Keynote speaker for Inclusion Fusion, our inaugural Special Needs Ministry Web Summit, to be held on November 3rd-5th.

Chuck has been among the most influential Bible teachers and Christian leaders of the past half century. His teaching is broadcast on over 2,000 radio stations around the world in seven different languages. He is the author of over seventy titles, including The Church Awakening, Embraced by the Spirit and The Grace Awakening.

Chuck currently serves as the Chancellor of Dallas Theological Seminary, after having served as President of the seminary from 1994-2001. He continues to serve as the founding pastor of Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, Texas. Stonebriar is home to a highly regarded special needs ministry.

Chuck and his team at Insight For Living have had a longstanding interest in ministry to families of kids with special needs. Members of our Key Ministry team have had many conversations with IFL staff over the past six or seven years around areas where our organizations might collaborate. Stonebriar Church had published one of the earliest comprehensive guides to church-based special needs ministry (no longer in print). Chuck did a series of radio broadcasts years ago with his daughter, Colleen about the impact of his grandson’s symptoms of autism on their family. Over the last few years, Colleen has joined the staff at Insight as Director of Special Needs Ministry, where she has developed a very popular ministry through her blog and other online resources. Colleen graciously served as our guest blogger this past April for Autism Awareness Day.

We’re thrilled that Chuck and Colleen have volunteered to be a part of Inclusion Fusion. We hope you’ll want to join us for this free event. For registration information, click here.

Interested in joining a bunch of folks who are passionate about families of kids with special needs coming to know and love Jesus Christ?  An event in which any church leader, volunteer or parent anywhere in the world who shares the same passion and has access to the Internet through a computer, tablet or smart phone can join in? That’s Inclusion Fusion. Register here for the Special Needs Ministry Web Summit, coming this November 3rd-5th.
