We are excited to introduce our new Webinar series entitled: Presence to Participation: The Spirit is not Disabled. Each webinar will focus on experts in the field of disability ministry, from both outside and internally to the Salvation Army, from around the world. We will also hear from those who have personal lived experience with disability as well as open up the discussion to hear from those who are attending.
Major Shelley Kerr (Divisional Headquarters, Bermuda) and Major Christine Johnston (Broadview Village) have both been involved in ministry with people with disabilities for a few years. They have both come to recognize that people with disability, who are often seen as those with needs actually have much to offer our faith communities. Throughout the past few years Shelley and Christine both have developed a growing passion to see all people, regardless of their ability, fully engaged in our Corps and other ministry units. In Christine’s own life experience, she has discovered that her disabilities may cause some limitations and challenges but they are also a gift of God that allow her to minister effectively and often from a unique standpoint.
