The mission of our District’s Task Force on Disability Ministry is: 

To equip the Church to practice inclusion of people with disabilities.

 

If your church is providing ministry for one or more people with disabilities, we would like to know so that we can add you to this list and encourage others!  Please contact one of our committee members below and let us know what you are doing.

Our Founding Work and Committee

Our District’s Task Force on Disability Ministry was established for ministry to and with people with disabilities. The 50th Regular Convention of our District in summer of 2015 reaffirmed our District’s need for a Task Force.

Our task force will work with churches and schools in need of:

  1. Resources to address needs of those with disabilities,
  1. Suggestions on how to involve them in the life & ministry of the church, and
  1. Catechetical helps & resources for pastors and other church workers.

The DMTF is thankful for the pioneering efforts of other Disability task forces throughout our Synod. We are most grateful for the generous assistance of Sue Hart, DCE Ministry Consultant for Bethesda Lutheran Communities. Bethesda is a Recognized Service Organization of the Missouri Synod and can be found online at: bethesdalutherancommunities.org.

We are also proud of our Synod’s efforts at awareness and sensitivity to people with disabilities:  http://www.lcms.org/socialissues/disability
