Meet Diane Dokko Kim.
Diane is a special needs ministry consultant, speaker, and author of Unbroken Faith: Spiritual Recovery for the Special-Needs Parent. We are thrilled that Diane will be joining us this fall for Lifeway’s ETCH Family Ministry Conference, October 17-19.
This year Diane will be presenting these breakouts:
Special Needs Ministry At Any Size or State (It’s Not Just for Big Churches): Survey the unique assets and challenges of special needs ministry at different church sizes and stages of development. Whether you are praying about starting a new ministry or seeking fresh ideas for an existing one, receive encouragement and practical strategies for right where you are.
Autism and the Church: A Family and Ministry Practicum: How does autism impact individuals, families and ministry teams? Gain insight from an autism parent and special needs ministry leader. Learn common challenges, workarounds, teaching tools and strategies for the church to partner with families for inclusion.
360 Church: Ministering to Families Affected by Disability Beyond 90 minutes on Sunday: Special Needs Ministry requires a family-approach that extends beyond the individual with the diagnosis, and 90 minutes on Sunday. Understand the unique stresses families face in their faith, marriage, parenting, and church attendance. Learn practical ways churches can provide support, and facilitate engagement with church life.
Don’t miss this opportunity to grow in your understanding of Special-Needs Ministry and particularly to learn from Diane! Register now for ETCH 2018 HERE. We hope to see you in Music City this October.
