The Irresistible Church – God’s Word & Practical Tips to Disability Ministry-Part 1 Presented by Paul Faculjak, Area Director, Joni and Friends

Luke 14 commands Christ followers to “Go quickly. . . find the blind, the lame, and the crippled . . . and compel them to come in!” While this sounds inspiring and daunting, exciting and overwhelming, what does it actually mean? How do we live and function within the church in such a way that families affected by disability are compelled to walk through our doors to experience the body of Christ? This presentation will help you to transform your church in becoming an irresistible and authentic community built on the hope of Christ that compels people affected by disability to fully belong. It is more than programs and activities—it’s a transformational work in our hearts, first as individuals and then as the body of Christ. Each person is seen as he or she truly is: created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27), designed as a masterpiece (Psalm 139:13-14), instilled with purpose, plans and dreams (Jeremiah 29:11), and a truly indispensable member of the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 12:22). Founded in biblical principles, this presentation will provide the practical steps, tool and activities to put flesh around the heart of the Church.
