From time to time during this year, we’ll take a look at important takeaways our Key Ministry team has gleaned during our first decade of helping churches welcome kids with disabilities and their families. During March, we’ll share six “Key” strategies…operating principles and approaches that provide a framework for our staff and volunteers when unexpected opportunities arise.
Each of these strategies SUPPORT the mission, vision and values of our organization…they’re subject to change when they no longer fulfill their purpose. The strategies are grounded in Biblical principles. Each strategy is synergistic with every other strategy. They all serve the purpose of helping to maximize the impact of the human and financial resources God has entrusted to our stewardship.
We’re anxious to share the strategies with our friends and colleagues throughout the disability ministry movement because…
- They’ve worked for us most of the time.
- They’ve helped potential partners better understand where we’re coming from in our approaches to serving churches.
- By sharing, we help to create organizational memory among our current and future leaders.
- They will serve as the springboard to new strategies formulated in response to new challenges and opportunities.
Here are the six strategies we’ll explore in this short series…
First up…Why we made our services available free of charge.
Our Key Ministry team is very much in need of your support if we are to continue to provide free training, consultation and resources to churches. Please consider either an online donation or a sponsorship from the Key Catalog. You can sponsor anything from an on-site consultation at a local church, the addition of a new site for church-based respite care, to a “JAM Session” to help multiple churches launch special needs ministries in your metropolitan area.
