Disability Ministries

Disabilities ministry

“Our culture tends to not value people with disabilities as whole persons,” says Bishop Peggy Johnson. “But the goal for any religious group is to help people see with new eyes that people with disabilities are truly valuable and have skills and abilities that enhance the faith community.”

Through advocacy, education and empowerment, the Disability Ministries Committee is leading The United Methodist Church in creating a culture where people with disabilities are fully included in all aspects of worship, leadership and ministry.

Accessibility Audit Documents

  • Annual Accessibility Audit – An accessibiilty audit is a list of items that your congregation can use to evaluate its accesibility. Conducting such an audit does not guarantee compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, building codes, or other legal requirements, but one can be used to get a program underway and alert you to potential problems.
