We are so glad to welcome you to this brand new online community! While we understand that true relationships occur offline, there is something encouraging about partnering together across the country under the banner of disability ministry. Pastors, ministry leaders, parents, caregivers, volunteers and individuals affected by disability will come together to learn, encourage, challenge and inspire each other towards becoming Irresistible.
So, what does this actually mean? An Irresistible Church is “an authentic community built on the hope of Christ that compels people affected by disability to fully belong.” This website will provide the resources to help each church fulfill the Luke 14 mandate to “go quickly…seek out the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame…and compel them to come into the house of the Lord.”
The Irresistible Church series of books provides hands-on, practical advice and training for the many aspects of disability ministry. Free downloads are available for each title as they are published. Please enjoy the blog posts on a variety of subjects by a variety of disability ministry leaders and advocates. Sign up for free membership to gain access to valuable resources and the ability to comment on the blog.
The Irresistible Church blog is truly a place to come and remember that you are not alone. God calls us to embrace everybody – the Gospel is for everybody – our churches must become safe places for everybody to fully belong. Welcome again and please join the movement with us all!
