This article is a part of the Spring 2021 Disability Concerns Canada Newsletter. In this newsletter, every edition will focus on a different Canadian classis and introduce you to its regional advocate.
Disability Concerns Canada is excited to announce our annual training event for 2021. Last year, in the very middle of the pandemic, we shifted our conference that typically takes place in the spring, in person, in Ontario to an online learning series in October. This change allowed for people across Canada and the States to join us via zoom. While we are still navigating this pandemic, Disability Concerns has chosen to repeat the experience for 2021!
Join us every Thursday evening in October at 8pm - 9pm Eastern for:
Everybody Belongs, Serving Together: Launching the Newest Resource for Supporting People with Disabilities in Faith Communities
The Disability Concerns Ministry is excited to announce that we are launching our 3rd edition of the Inclusion Handbook which will now be titled: Everybody Belongs, Serving Together. Church and Regional Advocates will be receiving their print edition in the mail within the next few months. It will be available by early June. What better way to introduce our community to the content of this newly updated handbook than by hosting a series where you get to meet the authors and hear from people working and supporting our community?!
Our speaker line up includes:
Mark Stephenson, Director of Disability Concerns Ministry, CRCNA
Cara Milne, Regional Advocate, Classis Alberta South/Saskatchewan, Author, trainer and consultant.
Exciting, right?! Make sure to save the dates in your calendar!
We will be releasing more details about the series as well as how to register for this event over the next few weeks. Updated information on how to join us will be posted on the Network, on Facebook, on Instagram and in our DC Canada monthly newsletters!
Looking forward to having you join our online series this October!
Please note: Whether you live in Canada or in the United States, please join us online for this event.
