Inclusive church ministry with people with disabilities

About this guide

This comprehensive guide to church accessibility and inclusive ministry will help your church embrace people with disabilities, not only as recipients of God’s love, but as partners in ministry. Previously known as the Inclusion Handbook, this expanded edition features a plethora of new insights, resources, and tips for becoming an inclusive church.

Maybe you have a disability yourself. Maybe you want to advocate on behalf of someone you know. Or maybe you’re a church leader hoping to work toward more accessible ministry. Whatever brings you here, you’re on your way toward advocating for fully inclusive ministry with people who have disabilities and their families.

How you'll grow:

  • Learn what you can do to improve your church’s accessibility. 
  • Reflect on the biblical foundations of inclusive ministry, beginning with the life and work of Jesus himself. 
  • Hear directly from people with disabilities about what an inclusive church means to them.
