Item description for All God's Children: Ministry with Disabled Persons by Joni Eareckson Tada & Gene Newman...
Overview A specialist in physical education collaborates with the bestselling author of When Is It Right to Die? on a handbook for leaders and laypeople who minister to those who are mentally retarded, learning disabled, hearing and/or visually impaired, or otherwise physically disabled. "Provides a foundation for establishing a much-needed area of ministry in the church".--Moody.
Statistics show that only 5 percent of churches have an outreach to disabled persons and that 95 percent of the people who have disabilities are not active in any church. Why not? In many cases, churches are newly coming to awareness of the need for disability ministry but have no idea how to start or what's involved. All God's Children is a handbook for pastors, elders, ministry leaders, and laypeople who want to minister to people with disabilities. It is a book to equip churches for ministry to those who are mentally retarded, learning disabled, hearing impaired, visually impaired, or otherwise physically disabled. This edition is extensively revised, especially the chapters on hearing-impaired persons and on getting a disability ministry started. The resource lists have been expanded and brought up to date.
