“Why?”…Our Conference Theme for Inclusion Fusion 2012

Why? Why is it so important that churches become more intentional about welcoming and serving children and adults with disabilities? That’s our theme for Inclusion Fusion 2012…Key Ministry’s Second Annual Disability Ministry Web Summit. This year’s Web Summit is scheduled from November 12th-November 16th, 2012.

Our Program Committee felt strongly that “Why?” has to come before “How?” We’ll still have a number of speakers to address the specifics of how churches can more effectively  meet the needs of kids and adults with disabilities, but all of the resources we provide will be of little use unless there’s first buy-in as to why this ministry is so necessary and so important.

We’ll be inviting some of our speakers to post videos on You Tube in which they answer the question “Why”…While I’m not currently scheduled to speak, here’s my video as Chairman of this year’s Inclusion Fusion Program Committee:

Help us get the word out about “Why” it’s so important that churches join us for Inclusion Fusion 2012 and become more intentional about inclusion of kids and adults with disabilities. Make your own video in which you answer the question “Why” and post a link below in the comments section. We may use your video to help promote this year’s Web Summit!

Key Ministry is coming up on our tenth anniversary, but churches and families everywhere will be getting the presents. Stay tuned for a big announcement on Tuesday, September 4th.
