CHOSEN-logo-web-05

We offer a full circle of opportunity to those with special needs—the opportunity to be evangelized, to be discipled, to learn about their spiritual gifts and calling and to operate in those gifts by serving others.

We welcome individuals with specials needs and their families with the love of Jesus so that every person, regardless of their ability or challenges, would feel embraced by the Body of Christ and celebrated for the unique person God created them to be.

While we have volunteers in our ministry who work in the field of special needs, it is important to know that we are not therapists and we do not do therapy. We are also not here to counsel or advise parents on their children. We are here simply to provide a welcoming place for every individual to come and feel embraced as a vital part of the body of Christ.
