Disability Summit Will Provide Tons of Resources and Networking

I am writing to let you know, as well as others who live in states surrounding California, about the Disability Summit being held October 26-28 in Pasadena, CA. This event is hosted by Joni and Friend International Disability Center and Co-hosted by the First Church of the Nazarene in Pasadena.  Scroll down for more details! Rest Ministries is going to be there too!


The Key Note Speakers are: Joni Eareckson Tada and Nick Vujicic. I have the honor to be presenting a workshop and leading a networking group on the topic of "Invisible Disabilities: Effective Tools Every Church Should Have for Outreach Ministry Both Inside and Outside the Church Walls."

Rest Ministries will also be exhibiting at two tables: one with all of our Rest Ministries and HopeKeepers information and one announcing our newest program Hope Endures Radio Podcast.

Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who may be interested. Even if you are unable to attend, take a moment to click on this link to read the brochure– If you are someone who serves in a leadership role with disability or illness ministry, be sure to put it on your schedule for next year. If you are someone who lives with illness, I hope it will encourage you to know that there are many many people who are working passionately to educate the church body on illness and disability and provide tools and awareness information to be able to better comfort you when you need it–and encourage you to participate in church leadership when God calls you to do so.
