Rejoicing Spirits is a proven and successful model that is easy for churches to replicate in their own communities. It uses creative worship, intentional community partnerships, fellowship, education and inclusion to provide people with intellectual and developmental disabilities  with the opportunity to explore and experience faith.

Rejoicing Spirits:

  • Serves as a first step into a faith community
  • Is a complementary service
  • May fully meet the current faith needs and desires a person has

Important elements include:

  • A shush-free worship environment at least once a month
  • Regular fellowship and service opportunties for people of all abilities
  • Education and sensitivity training for congregations
  • Building partnerships between people with disabilities, social services, families and churches.
