MINISTRY ROLE: Children/Youth Ministry Leaders, Team Leaders, Teachers, Small Group Leaders | TARGET AGE: Infant to Youth Classrooms | BY: Brenda Fischer
Many children’s ministry teams are seeing an increase in the enrollment of children who have disabilities involving significant behavioral challenges, such as autism, fetal alcohol syndrome, and others. No matter the diagnosis, our task is to lean on God in prayer and to find ways to bless hurting parents and joyfully include them and their children in the body. God, in His mercy, brings hard things to the church and to individual believers for our good and for His glory. Facing the ministry challenges of complex disabilities with our hands outstretched to God for answers is the only answer.
