What We Do and Why
The GIFT Ministry strives to meet the spiritual, physical, and social needs of children, teens, and adults with disabilities. We believe everyone deserves an equal opportunity to worship, learn, and serve in our church, regardless of his or her abilities.
Our programs, classrooms, and curriculum are all carefully planned to meet the following objectives:
- Nurture students desire for a Savior and develop their faith.
- Teach students that they are created in the image of God.
- Help students recognized that they were designed with a purpose.
- Guide students along the winding road to independence.
- Prepare students for a fulfilling future.
