Special Needs Ministry

The LRBA has a workgroup meeting to develop tools and ideas that will be helpful to churches desiring to serve special needs individuals and families. A Survey is being sent to churches and church leaders to help us learn more about engagement and interest around the Louisville Region. We will share results of that survey and continue to add resources as the process progresses. Please feel free to send feedback to office@lrba.org.
