Churches and the Disabled

Here’s a great video from PBS featuring a number of our ministry friends in the Orlando area…While the video primarily focuses on kids with very visible disabilities, I can’t think of a better way to illustrate to folks why we, and our colleagues in the movement to transform churches into places of inclusion for persons with disabilities and their families do the work that we do. The video is reasonably short…click on the picture below to view the video. Enjoy-and share!

Key Ministry’s mission is to help churches reach families affected by disability by providing FREE resources to pastors, volunteers, and individuals who wish to create an inclusive ministry environment. We have designed our Key Catalog to create fun opportunities for our ministry supporters to join in our mission through supporting a variety of gift options. Click here to check it out! For a sixty second summary of what Key Ministry does, watch the video below…
