Support for Families

As the parent of a child with special needs, you are well aware of the challenges. We are a lay couple who provide pastoral support and are also parents of a daughter with special needs.

Our goal is to reach out and support parents during difficult times. Often special needs parents feel alone and isolated.  As representatives of the Barnabas ministry, we are available to walk along side parents during those hard times.

In John 13:34 Jesus speaks of loving one another.  Galatians 6:2 says, "Bear one another's burdens, and in this way, you will fulfill the law of Christ".

Examples of some of the things we do:

  • Visit and pray with parents.
  • Refer parents to professional help when needed.
  • Visit in hospitals during hospitalizations of a child or parent.
  • Take meals to families.
  • Attend school activities or functions a child is involved in.

We would be happy to meet with you!
