Making Ministry Possible Again!

I am considering forming a Physically Challenged Ministry that ministers to those who cannot attend a typical church. I sat at home during the pandemic like everyone else, and while enjoying the church ministries on TV, much was lacking. And yet, many senior citizens do this year around, year after year, and it should not be. Our churches are not designed for the many wheelchairs we would need space for.

We feel that shut-ins should not be shut in, but given an opportunity to use their gifts for God and fellowship with others who are physically Challenged! Some of the greatest saints of God have had to take a back seat because of age and physical limitations and this is just not acceptable.

We would love to work this ministry through local churches, meeting once a week, in the fellowship hall or other areas available to wheelchairs and electric wheelchairs and/or mobility scooters. We would need an area designated for wheelchairs and another for chairs or tables as many can still move around on their own. This area would also be for workers and family members.

At 85 years of age, what is one to do? God immediately whispered, Start a “Physically Challenged” ministry and preach to others like yourself, bussing them in as you did children back in the 70’s-80’s, if they have no other way of transportation. My mind went into overdrive as I thought of the possibilities!

I talked to my Pastor and other Pastor’s whom I have great trust in and they all agreed that not only could it be done, but was a greatly needed ministry. After all, there is a plethora of retired pastors, Ministers of Music and musicians just waiting to be used again. Years ago, I would have financed the ministry myself until it could support itself as I did the two churches I started. However, this is no longer possible and will be financed as God speaks to His people.

Our churches are not designed to handle all the wheelchair and near wheelchair bound spaces needed but there are vacant businesses in most of our cities we could use and our services could be scheduled mid-afternoon so as to not interfere with our regular services. This would leave us with a plethora of workers to serve in this ministry. As stated earlier, some churches could use fellowship halls or other facilities they might have.

I suggest Sunday afternoon services so as not to interfere with local programs already in place.

As money becomes available, we will run busses with lifts to nursing homes and any place where transportation is not available. We built Mega churches using the bus ministry, picking up children years ago. This would be the same, only in reverse. In my city alone, we could easily have 500 present --- in no time!

Again, there is a plethora of retired Preachers/Worship Leaders, and musicians available, itching to preach and lead worship once again.

My friend, will you pray with and for us as we make plans and work those plans until the dream becomes a reality? If God lays it on your heart to help financially, use the donation button provided on this website.
