Making Worship Accessible

Physical Challenges in Worship

Complacency (n): a feeling of security, often while unaware of potential danger with an existing situation.

Does “complacency” describe your church and their attitude towards making worship accessible for people with physical and mental challenges?

Join us at 2 p.m. ET Thursday, June 15, 2017, as we discuss "Making Worship Accessible: Physical Challenges in Worship," and how churches can meet this challenge head-on.

This webinar will be moderated by Lisa Hancock, one of the co-founders of The Julian Way, an initiative of the Missional Wisdom Foundation focusing on ministry and communal engagement with individuals and families with physical and developmental disabilities. Lisa will also be a presenter at The Fellowship’s Awaken 2017 event, being held July 24-27 in Little Rock.

Panelists include:

  • Lynn Swedberg, liaison for the DisAbility Ministries Committee of the United Methodist Church.

  • Evelyn McMullen of Bright Threads Ministries.

  • Mark Crenshaw, Director of Interdisciplinary Training, Georgia State and previous Executive Director of Interfaith Disability Network.

  • Rev. Ramsey Patton, Assistant Pastor, Director of Caring Ministries, Highland Park UMC, Dallas.
