Special Needs & The Future of Children’s Ministry

March 31, 2011

I am greatly honored to be one of the 20+ leaders from children’s ministry circles invited to contribute to the FREE resource, The Future of Children’s Ministry.  Greg Baird from put together the following team of kidmin leaders to provide insight on how we see children’s ministry changing and growing in the coming years:

Karl Bastian ~ Rick Chromey ~ Jonathan Cliff ~ Amy Dolan ~ Matt Guevara ~ Tina Houser ~ Dale Hudson ~ Mike Johnson ~ Tony Kummer ~ Sam Luce ~ Gina McClain ~ Matt McKee ~ Todd McKeever ~ Larry Shallenberger ~ Justyn Smith ~ Gordon & Becki West ~ Henry Zonio ~ Michael Chanley ~ Amy Fenton Lee ~ Roger Fields ~ Tim Shiels ~ Greg Baird

Check out this FREE PDF for my thoughts on the following issues:

  • Will self-contained, special needs classrooms continue to be utilized in the church setting?
  • Will the use of special needs buddies provide the primary solution for special needs inclusion?
  • Why is “inclusion” the current trend?
  • How will special needs influence the curriculum and activities planned for the typical kidmin environments?
  • How will special needs influence both the policies & procedures and volunteer training  for the overall children’s ministry?
  1. Thank you for writing this article Amy! Such an important area that we are all becoming more aware of thanks to communicators like you! I appreciate the insight you share in the article and know it will be a great blessing to many as they move forward in serving these wonderful kids!
    Thanks again!
    Greg Baird, KidMin360
