Disability Ministry Network

Vision & Mission

The Vision of the Disability Ministry Network is that all people with disabilities, their families, friends, and caregivers who wish to participate in Christian faith communities will be welcomed, included, supported, and involved in the life of a congregation of their chosen tradition.

The Mission of the Disability Ministry Network is to build the capacity and enhance the impact of denominational and para-church organizations who promote inclusive congregational ministries for and with people with disabilities, their families, friends, and caregivers. The scope and focus of the Network is primarily within the United States, but connections are welcomed with those who share this mission in other countries.
