Special Connections

Transforming Lives Touched By Disability
CONNECTING THE TRANSFORMING POWER OF THE GOSPEL TO THE LIVES OF PEOPLE TOUCHED BY DISABILITY

Special Connections is a ministry to people of all abilities. Our desire is to see society and the Body of Christ show equal concern for people with disabilities and their families as is shown for others. Therefore, our focus is ministering, in word and deed, both to and alongside people touched by disability. We seek to enable people with disabilities and their families to hear the gospel of God’s grace, fully participate in the Body of Christ, and fully contribute in their churches and communities.

Vision

What we want to see in the ministry is the Gospel made accessible to all as the Body of Christ shows equal concern for people with disabilities and their families.

Mission

What we are committed to do is extend God’s grace by providing care, resources and opportunities for people with special needs and their families to be transformed by the Gospel.

Our Goals

To empower individuals with disabilities to live full lives, reaching their potential in every area of development.

To foster opportunities for people with disabilities to inspire others to reach their own potential.

To encourage the church to appreciate and experience how those with disabilities complete the Body of Christ.

To equip church members to effectively minister to individuals with disabilities and their families through the act of serving.

How to Get involved

We minister to individuals with disabilities because no physical, mental or spiritual condition is outside the transforming power of the gospel. We believe every person bears the image of God which means they have infinite valued and a unique purpose given by Him.

Disabilities really can be special abilities to experience God’s grace for both the person with the disability as well as the rest of the church. The Body of Christ is not complete without people with special needs.
