God’s Champions is a special needs ministry. At this time, this is a ministry that serves toddlers to senior high. Our goal for the future is to have a special needs ministry that serves all ages. We strive to support inclusion within the life of the church for the individual with special needs and their families to help facilitate growing love, knowledge and relationship with Jesus Christ.
God’s Champions goal is to SUPPORT individuals with special needs by either providing a buddy, modifying curriculum or doing both. We strive to keep all individuals with their peers. Another goal of God’s Champions is to EDUCATE. Educate and train our volunteers, educate those who attend church and the children about special needs. Last goal of God’s Champions is OUTREACH. We would like to eventually reach out to the special needs community and families and provide programs like respite care, day out for moms, dads and siblings. We want to reach out to families affected by special needs to show God’s love to them.

“God calls us to go out and reach people and show them His love and grace. These people are oftentimes just struggling, and need more support and help. That’s what God calls us to do, to show
love and compassion.” – Michele Whitenight
