Product Description

A guide to children's ministry that serves families with special needs

Jesus set a high standard when He said "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." The call is not limited to children who will sit quietly at His feet and listen, who color between the lines, who raise their hands and wait to be called upon, and who work at grade level. Children's ministries are responsible to be ready to bring children with disabilities to Jesus' feet too. Every Child Welcome is the guide for leaders and volunteers to assist in purposeful planning and skill development for a ministry inclusive of children with unique needs.

Experienced children's ministry leaders, and parents of special-needs children themselves, the authors are superbly equipped to offer a thoughtful, thorough approach to creating a positive environment for children---one where all children will be able to digest the important concepts being taught. For leaders and volunteers, Every Child Welcome will provide the knowledge and tools to:

  • create a welcoming environment before kids arrive
  • welcome children and set a positive tone
  • help children learn more effectively by connecting new information to what they already know
  • reinforce the main idea of a lesson, building background knowledge and reviewing important concepts
  • supplement instruction with hands-on activities to increase attention and participation
  • reinforce and wrap up an activity effectively

    Do you have children with special needs in your ministry? Or do you desire to include children with special needs in your ministry? If you have answered yes to either one of these questions then your ministry to children must be accessible to every child that comes through your doors.

    Unfortunately in most of our churches, children with special needs are shoved aside due to what seems like insurmountable walls that we have unwittingly place around our church ministries. Yet if you desire to break down these barriers, there is a book that will help you in this endeavor, Every Child Welcome: A Ministry Handbook for Including Kids with Special Needs, by Tate Wetherbee and Jolene Philo. This book is produced by Kregel Publications, takes Jesuss words spoken to his disciples in the gospels very seriously specifically when he stated Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for two such belongs the kingdom of heaven.

    Even if our hearts desire is to minister to all the children in our ministry or welcoming those who have special needs into our ministries, then a game plan needs to be devised to include those who need to hear the gospel in a way that is tangible to their ears. In Every Child Welcome, Weatherbee and Philo demonstrate to childrens ministry leaders how to create an environment that is not only welcoming to children with special needs, but includes them in activities that makes them feel a heart of the local church. One thing that the author stress is to avoid singling any child out due to their inability or problematic actions to any lesson, game, or activity.

    With this in mind Weatherbee and Philo lay out a great philosophy of ministry but truly focus on how to practically and faithfully fulfill that philosophy. This is a book that a childrens ministry leader will come back to again and again, not only for ideas for the childrens ministry but how to fine-tune their Ministry to make it more accessible to any and all children who desire to hear Gods word from their local church. As a childrens Minister myself I highly recommend this book as a practical tool for not only childrens pastors but for each and every childrens ministry leader so that their hearts may be melted in their arms may be opened to welcome any and all children who enter their ministry.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from Kregel Press in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
