Amy Fenton Lee joins us on the Kids Ministry 101 Podcast to discuss why some churches have enthusiastic synergy and success when it comes to special needs inclusion while other churches seem to flounder. The answers might surprise you. There are some myths that make churches feel that they may not succeed in Special Needs Ministry that prevent them from starting. Topics of discussion include:
- What struggles do special needs ministries in churches face?
- Why do some special needs ministries seem not to be successful?
- What does a successful and healthy special needs ministry look like?
- Why is a successful special needs ministry important in a church?
- How can churches develop a successful special needs ministry?
