Partner Congregations

Woman holds open door and shakes hands with entering man

​“A fully welcoming encounter with persons with disabilities will almost inevitably lead the church into the very center of the gospel, and deepen the church's capacity to follow Jesus. In short, the church must welcome persons with disabilities, not just because persons with disabilities need to be welcomed; the church must welcome persons with disabilities because, without such welcome, the church will not fully discover the unspeakable riches of its life in Christ.” 

—Spirituality and Hospitality: What the Church Can Learn by Welcoming Persons with Disabilities​
