Invitation from Tom Stolle:

“If you come, you will leave equipped…”

The Baptist Convention of Maryland Delaware and The Banquet Network invite you to the 3rd annual special needs and disability conference, “Indispensable: Equipping the Body of Christ to Engage Disability.”

The focus of this year’s conference is equipping. Participants will leave equipped with tools and practical directions on the mechanics of how individuals and churches can engage people with disabilities. We will discuss the “how tos” of subjects like evangelism to people with disabilities, improving building accessibility, fostering inclusive children’s classrooms, how to support families impacted by disability, and more.
