Church Consulting Services: The Need for Authentic Christianity
People with disabilities are the largest unchurched people group around the world, as well as in the United States.
However, statistics denote that there are roughly 54 million Americans living with disabilities (Survey of Income and            Program Participation (SIPP) data; 1997). Statistics also state that the average care provider for an individual with special needs has the same stress level as an active combat soldier.  Lastly, currently in the United States, emergency responders is the occupation that holds the highest divorce rate: roughtly 91%.  The divorce rate of care providers of specials needs children have a divorce rate of roughly 94%.  Yet, despite these blaring needs, those touched by disability remains the largest unchurched people group.
We know that they are among us in our communities, so the church must ask itself, "why aren't they among us in our church?"
There are many different reasons why individuals and or families  with disabilities do not find your house of worship inviting and or embracing. 
If you would like to explore the possibilities in order to change this, we would be honored to engage in that conversation with you!
