Key Ministry was key in helping me get our Special Needs Ministry going at my church. They are a wonderful resource and are there to answer any questions that you might have. I was able to attend Inclusion Fusion this year for the first time and it was excellent! One of my volunteers and I walked away with so much information and inspiration to take back home. I hope to be able to attend every year. Thank you Key Ministry for the direct & indirect role that you play in helping get the gospel out to families across the nation!

I have been benefiting from the articles and resources offered by Key Ministry for about 10 years. My interest started as a peer in ministry but I quickly grew to appreciate their services as a parent-caregiver too. I highly value the wise and practical help coming from a biblical worldview, particularly as it relates to navigating mental health difficulties and a wide variety of other special needs. As I've had opportunity to collaborate and partner with Key Ministry in recent years, I've come to appreciate the organization as a leader among leaders. Key Ministry is setting a standard for disability ministry while remaining a genuine cheerleader for like-minded organizations recognizing the significant need for resources.

Key Ministry provides invaluable resources and support for churches seeking to include children of all abilities. Their efforts in equipping the church in regard to mental health is of utmost importance and is sorely lacking. I use numerous Key Ministry resources in my graduate classes at Dallas Baptist University to equip students.

I started a Special Needs Ministry at our church recently and knew little to nothing about doing this sort of thing. And I knew very little about those with mental health issues. Key Ministry has been a great source to go to for answers and help. Through reading their articles and watching their videos I have learned much about what to do, and what not to do, also. They have been a great encouragement to me! Thank you Key Ministry!

Key Ministry has been such a Godsend! I have discovered an entire community of fellow special-needs parents living similar journeys and have been so very encouraged on a regular basis by them. Some are the blog writers, others are the parents in social media groups, and many of both groups have become dear friends. They have been hugely helpful in providing resources for churches and families. I am so thankful for this ministry!!

I'm thrilled with my experience with this organization. Key Ministry provides high-quality and relevant training as well as multiple supports and encouragement for caregivers. I've benefited from their online resources and attended a conference rich with a depth of equipping and information and breadth of topics. I highly recommend the Key Ministry team!

Key Ministry has been such an encouragement to me and also blessed by all the resources regarding inclusion in churches. I am a mother of a teen with autism and their supports and resources are a blessing for sure to many families.
Thank you Key Ministry Foundation!

I am thankful for the insight to my child's needs this organization has given me. I live in a rural area without many experienced physicians, therapists, or church settings that serve my child's situation. Their input has been valuable.
