JOY! A Disability Conference 

This is a two-day conference to help equip churches and anyone affected by or passionate about disability to become IRRESISTIBLE to people affected by disability—Join pastors, disability ministry leaders, volunteers, those in the disability field, parents and caregivers. This conference will help all of those affected by disability to become more connected and educated.

Friday night is FREE and open to the public, no registration required. The evening will begin at 6:00 with worship alongside Christopher Duffley, as well as an introduction with our Keynote Speaker, Emily Colson.

Saturday, register for the conference to join us for keynote speakers, worship, lunch and three different workshop tracks to choose from: Starting disability ministry, established disability ministry, and a parent/caregiver tack. These workshop will be information-packed with knowledgeable speakers who are experts on disability from around Tennessee. On Saturday, exhibitors will be set up 30 minutes prior to and 30 minutes after the conference (8:00-830 AM and 3:30-4:00 PM). Stop by their booths to learn more about disability organizations in the community, as well as resources and businesses that specialize in helping families affected by disability. This is a great way to get connected right away!

We trust you will leave the conference with the knowledge, tools and resources to begin a journey of becoming a church that is "irresistible" to families and individuals affected by disability, as well as with resources and new connections for caregivers and parents of those with disability.
