BELONGING: Disability & Church Transformation

These are exciting times as congregations are going a step beyond just welcoming and including people of all abilities. The world’s largest unreached group of people — individuals with special needs and their families — are being embraced in communities of belonging and God is shaping the future of His church as a result. In much the same way that caregiving transforms the life of a caregiver, churches are experiencing awakening and revival when they fully engage alongside people with different needs and abilities. Be a church that embraces Christ-reflecting values and learn how the current Disability Movement is proving to be a catalyst for rich diversity.


DIVINE TIDALWAVE: What happens when crisis collides with love

God loves seeing people doing life together well. The Jamieson’s story serves as a springboard illustration showing how God radically changed an entire community when their marriage storm and experience with disability were met with a remarkable season of support. Whether we are on the giving or receiving end of help, life challenges present an opportunity for God’s people to share the transforming love of Christ. 


Next Stop, Unexpected Adventure

We come into adulthood, careers, marriage, parenting, relationships and even retirement with dreams and expectations. But as we go along, life brings a fair share of changes, surprises and sometimes disappointments. What do we do with things like hurt, regret, spoiled plans or chronic suffering?


UNSHAKEN in the Unexpected:
Roadmap for Life’s Detours

Life challenges come in many forms. Suffering is real. Where is God in the midst of our questions, doubts, discouragement, overwhelm and fear? How do we navigate our way to hope and purpose? In seasons of stumbling faith, there is a straightforward road of access to experiencing God’s nearness, power and goodness.


Navigating Decisions On Life, Disability & Aging

Current culture may be collapsing when it comes to protecting life and human dignity. How should Christians respond to questions about suffering, aging-related conditions, chronic illness, disability and ethical dilemmas? Does the Bible offer help for decision-making that both God honoring and peace giving? We explore the opportunities and responsibilities of the Church in showing compassion while fostering a biblical worldview. Re-discover the truth that nothing is too hard for God!


Our Constant In Chaos

The pace of life can feel like a treadmill out of control. Households require managing. Careers need balancing with other demands. Children have us going in multiple directions. Even retirement keeps many people running ragged! There is a way to find real peace in all of life’s seasons.


WORKSHOPS

Being part of a special needs family teaches us, challenges us and raises many questions. Our workshops can help you pause, reflect, explore and grow. Walk Right In Ministries workshops can be offered live at a conference, retreat, church or location of your choice (e.g., in a home with a small group). They can also be held virtually through online services like Skype, FaceTime or Zoom video conference. 

BUILDING FAMILY CONNECTEDNESS:
Special Strengths Amidst Special Challenges

Special-needs families matter to God! Fighting for thriving relationships is one of our highest callings and brings benefits for our family as well as the community around us. This workshop is for the special needs family who wants to strengthen their home team, increase the fun, experience more peace and find deeper satisfaction together. 


Parenting Special Siblings

This workshop opens a dialogue about the challenges, disappointments, advantages and opportunities of being a sibling in a family affected by disability. Depending on the length of the session, topics can include sibling conflict, balancing attention, grief processing, dealing with social stigmas and misunderstanding, family vacations and managing stress.


The Intimate Dialogue of Prayer Journaling

Meeting with God can be a lifeline for the stretched and lonely caregiver. Yet prayer can feel unproductive, disappointing or intimidating when the days are long and healing doesn’t come. This fun and engaging workshop opens a whole toolbox of ways you can engage in intimate and life-lifting conversation with the Holy Spirit.

NOTE: Appropriate for ages 12 and up, this workshop makes a fun parent-teen date too.


DISENTANGLED: Freedom for the Special Needs Mom

Special needs moms can feel consumed by disability issues and caregiving while trying to manage an entire household. Some sense a “loss of self.” Many carry a secret discontent or longing to escape the daily grip of comparisons, insufficiencies, fear and grief. Discover God’s freedom from impossible demands and win the battle for ultimate rest.


RESILIENCE: Game Planning for the Special Needs Family

Support systems and respite strategies are essential for the special needs family that wants to thrive, for the short and long term. But energy, time, resources, creativity and willing helpers are limited. This workshop provides an opportunity to slow down, reflect on your family’s unique needs, explore opportunities with others in similar circumstances, and then develop a personalized strategy for moving forward. 


The Importance of Special Dads

Men experience unique difficulties fulfilling their roles as father and husband in the special needs family. A long work week, layers of grief, increased financial and emotional strain, fewer opportunities to bond with the children and other pressures can challenge his ability to engage in his family and marriage affected by disability.  This workshop creates a venue for special dads to explore their challenges and opportunities. 


Stories that Lift Life

How we share about ourselves, our circumstances and our faith can build or erode the connections we long for, especially when our lives are complicated. This workshop explores what makes our stories compelling, reveals how our personal stories fit into the eternal story and fosters life-lifting conversations.
