Regional Disability Advocates Serve Churches

Disability Concerns has a network of Regional Disability Advocates who are eager to assist the churches of their classes. If you wish to be in touch with one of them, click on the name of the Regional Advocate below. In your note, please tell us the name of your church, your city and province/state. If your classis does not have a disability advocate (blank space after classis name below), then please tell us if you know of someone who might like to serve in this way. At the heart of the job description for this volunteer position is to help the churches of a classis have the full participation of all people with disabilities in the life of the church and the full participation of the church in the lives of people with disabilities.
