Congregations: Equipping the Church

We seek to promote disciple-making to and with people impacted by disability by equipping congregations to create communities of belonging and flourishing for all.

Making Disciples

Our mandate is to make disciples which put simply means to follow Jesus and lead others in following Him. Done right, this promotes communities of belonging and flourishing for all because love is made visible.

Equipping Congregations

Our disciple-making mandate includes helping disciples to follow Jesus as a relationally-committed community. Done right, love’s visibility is magnified because Jesus is leading the process of making Himself known.

Theology of Disability 

The Wheaton Center for Faith and Disability’s Theology of Disability is currently a working document that is foundationally rooted in Genesis to Revelation. Various Christian scholars and those whose lives are impacted by disability are giving their valuable review and input. You can look forward to a series of upcoming blogs that will give emphasis to portions of our Theology of Disability text from a group of leading experts.
