Coming Tuesday…the NEW www.keyministry.org

We’re marking the beginning of our tenth anniversary year at Key Ministry by taking our mission to help churches serve families affected by disability to an exciting new level.  On Tuesday, September 4, we’ll launch our new and improved ministry website, loaded with features to empower, equip, and unleash ministry leaders to create an inclusive culture in the local church.   When opening the new site, you can enjoy…

The Resource Kit

First, visitors will notice the addition of a FREE resource kit with over 180 unique downloadable resources to launch and grow disability ministry initiatives in churches across the U.S. and beyond.  Simply create a username and password and the options are endless.  The Resource Kit includes the following categories:

  • FREE RESPITE – Everything you need to join the movement. www.FREERESPITE.com – coming this fall!
  • Inclusion Fusion Disability Ministry Library – Video training from ministry leaders across the country;
  • Key Ring Binder – Your ignition key for launching Inclusion Ministry;
  • Key TV – What’s new in disability ministry? Tune in and find out!
  • Party with a Purpose – Party planning tools and tips to make a splash in the disability community!
  • Special Events – Out-of-the-box ways to energize your Inclusion Ministry;
  • The Workbench – Come get connected with the latest and greatest teaching tools and techniques to enhance your ministry

Requests for Training & Consultation

If your church needs help serving kids with special needs, or if you know a church who does, just send them here! Guests will be directed to an automated form that asks for specific information; based on this information, we’ll know the best way to follow up and help.

Church Connection

Our team at Key Ministry has the pleasure of serving and connecting with incredible ministry leaders in churches across the country every day. We understand it can be an intimidating process for families affected by disability to find a church home.

The Church Connection is a place where families can connect with churches that have a heart for disability ministry. Churches featured here have formally connected with Key Ministry through training, JAM Sessions (free one-day workshops on inclusion ministry), FREERESPITE, or consultation. We’ve tried to give visitors a snapshot of what inclusive offerings each church features, ranging from children’s ministry to adult programming.

We are excited to expand this database as we work together to create “a church for every child”.

Success Stories

We know that encouragement is important to anyone leading a ministry initiative.  It can often seem like a lonely place.  We have created a space to share success stories from other ministry leaders who have championed inclusion in their local church.  Visitors will be encouraged as they hear about the great things God is doing!

Social Media Connection

Social Media has changed the way we all connect, both personally and professionally.  Now you can connect with Key Ministry through a wide range of social media outlets from one convenient place.

 Social media

We are so excited to have a new space to engage even more ministry leaders in the disability ministry movement.  We hope you’ll stop by and take a look around! All of our resources…as they have been since day one, are offered free of charge to churches seeking to welcome and serve kids with disabilities and their families.

The website may feel a little overwhelming at first. I’ll be doing a series of blog posts next week to walk you through the resources available at keyministry.org.
