Special Needs Ministry
We believe that every child should belong to a family of faith and that all children are children of God. At Bay Pres, children with special needs receive a Christian education in the least restrictive and most inclusive environment.
We provide tailored experiences for your family, including:
- One-on-one buddies (as needed) to support children in our preschool and elementary ministry environment
- Individualized Christian education for those who require a less stimulating environment (In His Image for ages 18+ at the 9:00 worship hour and Downtown Special Needs Classroom for ages elementary - age 17 at the 9:00 & 11:00 worship hours)
- Volunteer training for our small group leaders
- Free quarterly Respite Events for children with special needs and their siblings to attend together—giving moms, dads and caregivers a chance to catch their breath! Find out more about Respite here.
Bay Pres hosts regional conferences and workshops to equip churches, families and individuals in disability ministry.
Additional support and information are available from Key Ministry Foundation.
