Study to focus on disability and ministry
A note to church leaders from the Anabaptist Disabilities Network (ADN):
If you are interested in $100 in exchange for 60-90 minutes of your time talking about disability in your congregation, then read on.
Erik Carter, professor of special education at Vanderbilt University, and his team are hoping to speak with hundreds of people across the country who are actively involved in leading some form of intentional disability ministry at their church. This is part of a first-of-its-kind National Study of Disability and Ministry. They want to learn about what churches are currently doing in this area, the complexities of this work, the difference it is making, and the resource needs of ministry leaders. Their findings could help advance the work of organizations like ADN — as well as congregations. The interview lasts just 60-90 minutes, takes place at the convenience of the person they are interviewing, and includes a $100 gift card.
