Inclusion Fusion Speakers: Introducing Laura Lee Wright

Our Key Ministry team has had several opportunities to work with Laura Lee Wright in her capacity as Access Ministry Team Leader at Northland Church in Orlando. Having experienced the passion and dedication she has for ministry, we’re honored to have Laura Lee serving as a faculty member for our first Inclusion Fusion Special Needs Ministry Web Summit. She’ll be speaking on the topic “For Kingdom’s Sake.”

In God’s Kingdom we all have a place to serve. Laura Lee’s presentation discusses what the Bible says about serving others and will address approaches to the development of services opportunities for individuals and families who live with disability.

Laura Lee holds a BA degree in Social Work and a Masters degree in Organizational Leadership from Palm Beach Atlantic University. She has spent her professional career working with individuals with disabilities, including advocating for people with disabilities at United Cerebral Palsy of Southeastern Wisconsin, working in residential settings including Quest Inc. Orlando, and assisting other churches in the U.S. and United Kingdom through International Teams. Born with cerebral palsy, Laura Lee firmly believes that “all individuals, including those with disabilities, are not only called to have a personal relationship with Christ, but called to serve.”

She was hired by Northland: A Church Distributed to develop programming for individuals and their families who live with disabilities, ensuring that individuals with disabilities and their families are included in all aspects of life at Northland.

Laura Lee is the real deal. As anyone who has ever served with Laura Lee can attest, she lives a life that reflects the love of Christ. We’re confident you’ll be inspired by Laura Lee’s presentation on making use of the gifts and talents of persons with disabilities in the life of the church.
