Disability Ministry exists to glorify God by bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to the special needs community. We believe every person is created in the image of a sovereign and loving God. Every follower of Jesus has been uniquely gifted with abilities to help build up the church family and make a difference in the world. We don't focus on disabilities. Instead, we rely upon Christ's ability to do great things through all of us.
New Hope Church is equipped for individuals with a variety of disabilities. Entrances to the church and restrooms are wheelchair accessible. All Disability Ministry participants must be accompanied by a personal care attendant.
