Do you have children with special needs in your ministry? Or do you desire to include children with special needs in your ministry? If you have answered yes to either one of these questions then your ministry to children must be accessible to every child that comes through your doors.

Unfortunately in most of our churches, children with special needs are shoved aside due to what seems like insurmountable walls that we have unwittingly place around our church ministries. Yet if you desire to break

This is a wonderful book. It is written by my mom and her friend and colleague. This book is not just for ministry, this book is for everyone that wants to be more inclusive in their personal world.
This book is full of helpful resources. The authors explain through personal experience advice on how to include different learners in ministry. I want to reiterate that this book is not just for ministry workers, it is for everyone who wants to be more inclusive.
You can just tell that the authors

This book is a great resource for Sunday school teachers who want to make Sunday school a positive experience for all of their students -- including those with special needs. Loads of tips and practical ideas for every minute of class -- from drop off to pick up. Many of the ideas are also helpful for children who are standard learners. The authors have the right mindset about the importance of Christian education for all students, and they have given the church a book that is not only helpful ...more

When we talk about ministering to and helping children, whether in the church or in the culture, we often use the phrase the least among us, in part, to emphasize the responsibility we have to them. They often do not know or cannot be a voice for their own needs so adults are given the responsibility to do so for them. While ministering to them can be a challenge at times, it can also be one of the greatest sources of joy and blessing. There is nothing quite like explaining the gospel of Jesus ...more

Katie Wetherbee and Jolene Philo's Every Child Welcome: A Ministry Handbook for Including Kids with Special Needs is one of the most important resources for churches and pastors. It distills information for church leaders and for church ministries with special needs children, by educators who have spent their careers with children with disabilities.


Every Child Welcome is filled with extremely practical ideas and strategies for including children with all levels of intellectual, physical,

What started out to be a promising resource book for our church school program's desire to serve the needs of all children, quickly became a theologically conservative lame duck. This is a book with great ideas to use with all children...not just those with special needs. If you are looking for a specific resource to build up your religious education ministry and equip your teachers and volunteers to work and minister with children on the autism spectrum, those with developmental delays, any ...more
