"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?"

THE THEOLOGY OF DISABILITY MINISTRY
"Christ established the local church as his representation and reflection in the world. It is through the church that God takes people with different personalities and gifts, unifies them as a single body, and equips them to care for each other and reach the world. Everyone has gifts and talents intended for the benefit of the Body of Christ as represented by the local church. The entire church misses out if any Christ-follower is excluded. To reach families no one else is reaching, churches will need to try new strategies and approaches no one else is trying." -Key Ministry
