According to the most recent census data, 56.7 million people in the United States have a disability. That is nearly one in every five people. When 400 families of children with disabilities were asked, nearly 50% reported that they did not participate in faith-based activities because their child was not welcome or included.
The goal of the Special Needs Ministry here at Concordia is to create a place where families of children and youth with disabilities can comfortably and confidently worship. We hope to minister to each member of the family so that they will be able to ultimately call Concordia their spiritual home.
