Special Need Ministry

Special Needs Ministry seeks to bring wholeness to all in a world that is broken. A sense of “wholeness” is not dependent on the removal of one’s disability. It is a rediscovery of the completeness a person has in God. This ministry has a unique opportunity of not only proclaiming, but also emphasizing the value and dignity of each person. The Christian church is not only known by what it says, but also by what it does. Therefore, this ministry exists to coordinate and promote acceptance, support, and inclusion of people who have special needs and those who care for them. This global ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church encompasses ministry for and with the deaf, blind, orphans, and those with mental health and mobility challenges. It also includes providing support for caregivers of those with special needs. At the heart of this ministry is the conviction that all have something to contribute and by contributing they have entered the journey toward wholeness.
