Barb Dittrich is a valued colleague and friend of our team at Key Ministry. She’s been very helpful in her service on our Program Committee for Inclusion Fusion and we’ve been very pleased to see God opening doors for the ministry she leads in Wisconsin (Snappin’ Ministries) as they collaborate on building Zachariah’s Acres, a Christian respite facility and campus for children with special needs and their families. Barb will be joining us as a speaker for Inclusion Fusion, addressing the topic Bathing In The Healing of Forgiveness.
The lack of forgiveness causes more stress and tension in our lives than we consciously realize. And when it comes to parenting a child with special needs, there is a great need to forgive and be forgiven! In Barb’s presentation, she’ll identify the areas that need that healing power of forgiveness, and learn how to bathe in its peace.
Barb is the Executive Director and Foundress of SNAPPIN’ MINISTRIES (Special Needs Parents Network). The mother of three children, two of whom have a variety of disorders, Barb has served the disability community since 2002. The organization she leads was one of three finalists for WORLD MAGAZINE’S Hope Award for Effective Compassion in October of 2009, and was awarded a $5,000 gift towards their work in conjunction with the American Bible Society. Besides being a regular speaker at camps and seminars, Barb has been featured on BlogTalk Radio, Toginet Radio, Trinity Broadcast Network and other media venues.
Barb will also be facilitating a “Tweet Chat” on Thursday, November 3 at 8:30 PM Eastern, during which Inclusion Fusion participants will have the opportunity to interact with many of our speakers. More on that this weekend.
Barb will be joining more than twenty leaders in children’s ministry and disability ministry on November 3rd-5th to put on a FREE Special Needs Ministry Web Summit to connect church staff, volunteers, family members and caregivers everywhere. That’s Inclusion Fusion, featuring Keynote Speaker Chuck Swindoll. Register here for the Summit!
