1. Brief description:


You will write a 10-page paper that synthesizes and applies the core concepts of this course in a real world setting.  Specifically, create a church (or you may use a real church as a model) and propose a full inclusion children’s ministry program that will meet the needs of one specific child who they also create.  Describe the church and current children’s ministry and then present a proposal that includes a scientific (i.e., research-based) and biblical rationale, and the resources needed to successfully implement the ministry.  In addition, identify a fictional child and describe that child’s disability (including current research in the area), church-family partnership opportunities for IEP/IFSP goals, and a long-term plan for the ministry.



3. Purpose:

2.      A rationale (both biblical and scientific) for full inclusion, including a “mission statement” for a special needs ministry.

4.      An introduction to the specific child and a research section detailing the specific disability (etiology, prevalence, characteristics, prognosis, current research in the field, social dynamics, etc.)


5.      A section specifically addressing how the church could partner with the family and other service professionals to meet four specific goals, including one spiritual development goal.


6.      A plan for growth in the area of special needs ministry in the coming year and 5 years down the road (please include 3 – 5 specific goals that are measurable and can be evaluated).
