Key Ministry Fall Preview

Our team at Key Ministry is very much looking forward to the ways in which churches will use the new tools and resources we’re making available this Fall to support the work of welcoming and serving kids with disabilities and their families.

In addition to Katie Wetherbee’s upcoming appearance at the Group Kidmin Conference and Inclusion Fusion, we’ll have several opportunities this Fall for church leaders and volunteers to receive training live and in-person.

Here’s a preview of what we have in store for you on this blog for Fall, 2012…

During the coming week (September 4-9), I’ll take you on a personal tour through all of the new resources available on the new Key Ministry website. Our ministry team has done a fabulous job of assembling 180 FREE, downloadable resources for church staff, volunteers and families. We’ll help you discover the resources most likely to be of help to you and your church.

Beginning in mid-September, and leading up to Inclusion Fusion 2012, we’re going to present a blog series, Faces of the Movement intended to introduce you to some fabulous leaders you’ll see and hear who are making great contributions to the movement among Christ-honoring churches to embrace families of kids with disabilities. We’ll have in-depth interviews with authors of some new books that are helping to fuel the movement and help you make connections with great people who are being used by God in advancing His Kingdom.

During Inclusion Fusion 2012 (scheduled for November 12-16), I’ll call your attention to speakers with a particularly interesting perspective or topic, and help you to connect with the conference faculty through live, interactive events throughout the Web Summit.

After Thanksgiving, I’m considering two different blog series. One series will address the topic Understanding Schizophrenia. The other series is occasioned by Key Ministry’s tenth anniversary of serving churches on December 24th.  I’d like to look back at what our team has learned in the past ten years and give our readers and the churches we serve a preview of things to come should the Lord tarry in His return.

Thanks for your prayers and support on behalf of the mission and people of Key Ministry! Please spread the word about our FREE resources…because we put nearly all of our finances into people to offer training, consultation and support to churches, we count on all of you to help publicize and share our resources.

Key Ministry will be celebrating our tenth anniversary later this year, but churches and families everywhere will be getting the presents. Stay tuned for the launch of the new keyministry.org on Tuesday, September 4th.
