Announcing Inclusion Fusion 2012!

I’m pleased to announce that Key Ministry’s Second Annual Inclusion Fusion Disability Ministry Web Summit has been scheduled for November 12-16, 2012.

Thanks to Jeremy Collins and his team at Pajama Conference, we’re planning to build upon last year’s inaugural Summit, during which 1,300+ pastors, ministry directors, volunteers and parents joined our featured speaker Chuck Swindoll and two dozen leaders from the disability ministry field for an extraordinarily successful FREE online learning and networking experience.

We’ll have much more to share in the weeks and months to come, but I can tell you…

Inclusion Fusion will again be offered free of charge…our goal is to attract as broad an audience as possible who are passionate about including kids with visible and hidden disabilities and their families in the life of the church.

You’ll see lots of new speakers this year sharing their experience and wisdom with church leaders and families on an ever-expanding range of topics of interest in the field of disability ministry.

We’re going to be intentional in creating as many ways as possible for participants and speakers to interact with one another in real time.

We will continue to have an open invitation for speakers wishing to participate in Inclusion Fusion. We’ll be inclusive of anyone who can meet the high standards our Program Committee sets for presentations accepted into the Web Summit.

For the time being, save the dates and we’ll let you know when we can begin to accept submissions to Inclusion Fusion as well as when you can begin to register for this year’s Web Summit.

For those of you who didn’t have the opportunity to join us last year, here’s a preview of what you might expect. I hope you enjoy this video of an interview between my Key Ministry teammates Rebecca Hamilton and Katie Wetherbee in which Katie addresses the topic of how to advocate for your child at church. Here’s the link for Katie’s Power Point handout that accompanied the presentation.
