Disabilities Ministry

"And when they could not bring [the paralyzed man] to Jesus because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him..."
— Mark 2:3-4 (paraphrased)

The Disabilities Ministry is committed to opening doors and building bridges in the Church of the Brethren and beyond so that all may worship, serve, be served, learn, and grow in the presence of God as a valued member of our Christian community.

The disabilities ministry of the Church of the Brethren has partnered with ADNet, the Anabaptist Disabilities Network, to expand the resources available to Church of the Brethren congregations and individuals. Read more about the partnership, and use the links to the left to learn how your congregation can better support and advocate for our sisters and brothers with disabilities and mental health issues.
