People with disabilities come from all walks of life. In fact, about 20% of Americans have some form of disability. Nevertheless, these people are often excluded from the life of the church. Most churches lack the theological, practical, and material resources to welcome a broad array of people with disabilities. Autism, Alzheimer’s, PTSD, Down Syndrome, various physical and cognitive disabilities, depression, anxiety and addictions can prevent people from full participation in the Body of Christ. The renewal of the Church is a renewal of faithfulness. This year’s Light the Fire conference will equip clergy and laity to be faithful in ministry with people with disabilities. We will bring together theological discussion with plenty of “how to” sessions for creating a church of people of all abilities.
