If distance and travel costs make an in-person presence at your event prohibitive, we would be happy to work with you to bring a speaker into your setting through videoconference technology.

All our speakers are strong communicators of ADN’s vision that faith communities are transformed when individuals with disabilities and their God-given gifts and experiences enjoy full inclusion in the Body of Christ.
