Seek the Son Ministries is heading outdoors. Trekking with Jesus will encourage people affected by disabilities to explore God in Nature and help them realize their role in God’s plan. We also strive to create virtual spaces to network with other disabled individuals and strengthen each other’s walk with Christ.
Equipping the Church
Lausanne paper 35b states that 85% of the churches polled indicated that they lack the knowledge, training, or leadership necessary to launch a disability ministry. The mandate of welcoming all to the great banquet, Luke 14:12-24, impassions us to equip churches and para-ministries to fulfill this need. We also desire to make Jesus real to the disability community, through a servant’s heart found in John 13:1 – 17.
