We’re waiting to hear from YOU!

Resources

By Stephen Grcevich, MD

If you’re involved with ministry to families of kids with a special need, we want to hear from you!

When Michael first contacted our team at Key Ministry about this site, his intention was to create a “gathering place” for those involved with special needs ministry “focused on individuals and how they are ministering to OUR kiddos.  A site where people can both give (share what their doing and how) and receive (read what others are doing) among loyal yoke-fellows!” To this point (IMHO), there’s been too much of Michael, Katie and Steve (after all, we each have our own ministry blogs) and not enough being contributed by others in the field.

That’s where you come in.

In my mind, the reason to have a site like this is to help us to become better networked and to share resources and encouragement with one another. We want folks to be able to discover the other people who are doing special needs ministry and to hear of one another’s successes.

I’d ask you to e-mail myself (steve@keyministry.org) or Katie Wetherbee from our team (katie@keyministry.org) if you’d be willing to do a post for this blog. You can discuss pretty much anything about your ministry…how you got started, challenges you’ve faced, stories of how God’s used your ministry in neat ways, lessons you’ve learned that you’d like to share with others…anything. You can even video blog if you can post your video to a site like You Tube where we can access and embed your video.

More importantly, we want this movement to remain inclusive. There are too many other areas of ministry that have become dominated by a small group of insiders who promote one another’s work to the exclusion of others. We want EVERYONE with good ideas for ministry to kids with special needs to have a platform for sharing their ideas with the rest of the community.

In addition to his role with Key Ministry, Dr. Grcevich is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine, Senior Clinical Instructor in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and serves as President of Family Center by the Falls, a multidisciplinary behavioral health group practice located in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
