Faces of the Movement…Chris Nelson

Technology is everywhere. Technology makes events such as Inclusion Fusion possible. Leaders in the disability community are beginning to explore the use of available technologies to minster to more individuals and more families more effectively. Chris Nelson will be providing a primer in the use of technology in inclusion ministry in his upcoming presentation  Technology and Special Needs Ministry.

Whether you’re still trying to figure out how to  justify the cost of an iPad for your ministry, or you’re an old pro looking for new apps for existing mobile devices: it’s Chris’ goal to help you use technology to reach kiddos with the gospel of Jesus Christ!

Chris is a consistent volunteer who for the past three years has run the Special Needs Ministry at Traders Point Christian Church. He is also the Director of Operations at Delivra, a Software as a Service company based in Indianapolis, Indiana. He lives in the small town of Pittsboro with his wife and two children. Chris is an active board member on the CIO Advisory Council for NPower Indiana, sits on the Strategy Advisory Committee for Techpoint Foundation For Youth, and serves on the Industrial Advisory Board for the Technical Communications Program for the IUPUI School of Engineering and Technology.
