A few months ago, Talitha and I visited the Joni and Friends International Disability Center in Agoura Hills, California. This is the hub for the variety of ministries spreading out from JAF–family retreats, wheelchair outreach, radio ministry, church relations, visitation, disabilities awareness curriculum, daily devotions, and connection with the JAF field ministries scattered around the country. There also is a new TV program.
It’s hard to take it in–how many kinds of activities spring from this center. So I think I’ll focus on some ministries individually in future blogs.
In the meantime, this video highlights the Christian Institute on Disability, one of the key ministries of the Center, offering education and internships for this purpose: “To Impact the Church, Christian and public institutions and societies with a biblical worldview and life-giving Truth on issues pertaining to life, dignity, justice and equality that affect people with disabilities.”
