Loving People With Disabilities: Creating the Kingdom of Belonging God Intended
We use words like inclusion and integration a lot, but is that really what God asks us to do? We seek to go beyond inclusion to belonging to model God's kingdom as He intended. Join us for a special keynote speaker who can help us all understand how we can build that kingdom and how we can help guide others to do so as well.
Keynote Speaker with Q&A
Erik Carter, PhD
Luther Sweet Endowed Chair in Disabilities and
Executive Director of the Baylor Center on Developmental Disabilities
We will also have an international panel for Q&A who speak from first-hand experience about belonging and what practical ways we can make it happen in our own lives both within and outside the church walls.
