“As a parent of a son with Down syndrome, my passion is to encourage and lead churches and other spiritual places into becoming communities where people of all abilities are encouraged and supported to fully engage in the life of their church—to know that they belong not only at church, but also in the body of Christ.

I’ve read about and followed CLC Network for over ten years and have used many of their resources in my own church; I am excited to be able to share what I’ve learned with other churches! I also want to help churches understand that the steps they take toward inclusion are not only important for one individual, but beneficial for their whole community.”
