IN 2018


_AM63644 (2)


IN 2018 holds many great opportunities.  This year, we are taking a new approach in order to broaden the scope of what we can offer.

Rather than hosting IN as a conference, we will be hosting an IN 2018 series of workshops throughout the year that will provide resources and support for churches and other ministries who seek to learn more about including individuals who live with disabilities.

There are a wide variety of learning opportunities such as:
• Workshops that will INclude lessons from different people and their journeys.
• Workshops that will help churches INvite their members who live with disabilities to participate in programs—- hands-on, practical tools for inclusion.
• Workshops that will INform and teach about inclusion from a biblical perspective.
• Workshops that will INspire church leadership by providing resources for care— the Pastor’s toolbox!

If you have a request for a specific kind of workshop, or you would like your church to host an IN workshop, please connect with us.

Coming IN 2018:

We will be advertising each workshop.  Please contact us to be added to our list.
