Disability Advocate Job Descriptions


These job descriptions give guidelines for volunteer disability advocates who serve individual churches (Church Advocates) and groups of churches (Regional Advocates).

Here's a quick summary of what church disability advocates are asked to do:

  • Identify the needs of church members living with a disability (and their loved ones) and together explore with church leaders appropriate ways for the church to respond.
  • Encourage the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the life of the church so that their God-given abilities are utilized fully.
  • Assist people with disabilities and their families (as appropriate) to identify needed resources.
  • Offer Disability Concerns resources to the congregation, including Breaking Barriers.
  • Advocate for the adoption of a disability policy by church leaders and assist in its implementation.
  • Establish and implement annual goals to improve the congregation's welcome and engagement of people with disabilities.
  • Communicate yearly with the Regional (Classis) Advocate for Disability Concerns and participate in training opportunities when possible.
