We have a fun announcement for everyone that we’d love for you to come to see. I will be speaking at the Inclusion Fusion Live event on April 24, 2020. This will be a time for churches and families who have someone with a disability to come and hear about ways their family or ministry can help serve people with mental health, developmental disabilities, and the families and communities who support them.
I’m honored to be a part of this. Since the last conference last year, I have been on a mission to incorporate mental health with my church and I’ve seen great progress. I have also been in contact with Dr. Grcevich several times over the year and had great conversations on what churches could be doing to move forward with the discussion of mental health. I’m excited for this year’s conference and making connections with people who are pumped for taking this back to their church to start as well.
I will be speaking at two different events. The first will be part of a team in the mental health ministry intensive on Friday morning. The second presentation will be on youth ministry and mental health Friday evening during Session #5 which starts at 7:45pm. On top of that, I will have a booth where you can come say hi and see some of the stuff I’m developing with ChurchAndMentalHealth.com.
The theme of the conference this year is Illuminate. They are using the verses Ephesian 5:13-14 for the inspiration of the conference:
But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light.
While the conference webpage is currently in a soft launch and not every option for the conference is available for purchase, you can go see what will be available now.
KeyMinistry serves a unique role in connecting churches with families of children with “hidden disabilities”… mental illness, trauma, and developmental disabilities. They embrace the role as leaders among like-minded individuals, organizations and congregations in the movement to welcome and include persons with disabilities and their families in the life of the local church.
