Supporting individuals with additional needs and their families to fully participate in the life of the Church.
Unlimited is for preschool through elementary aged individuals with a variety of unique circumstances ranging from mental and behavioral health needs to developmental disabilities.
Unlimited will provide services to students with unique needs during the 10:45 service in the sensory room and through a buddy system. Unlimited will also seek to provide respite night events where care will be provided for youth with special needs and their siblings, allowing for their parent(s) to have an evening of rest.
If you are interested in serving, want more information about this ministry, or know a family who could benefit from Unlimited, contact Jenna Hannum at firstname.lastname@example.org. A brief intake interview will need to occur before services through Unlimited can be provided in order to be sure that we can best meet the unique needs of each child.
To have an evangelistic impact on the special needs community through proactive outreach making the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ accessible to people of all abilities in fulfillment of the Great Commission
To equip people with disabilities and their families to become full participants and contributors in the body of Christ
(1 Cor 12:27)
The services of Unlimited ministry may be requested by the individual themselves, the family of the individual, or the ministry leader(s) serving the individual. For the purpose of Unlimited, the terms “additional needs”, “special needs”, and “disability” encompasses a broad range of unique needs, including, but not limited to: learning differences, intellectual disability, neurological disorders, developmental delays, communication disorders, social skills deficits, physical disabilities, sensory needs, and medical conditions. A student experiencing a sudden life change may also benefit from the services of Unlimited for a period of time. Understanding why a particular student requires the services of the ministry is often unimportant. What is important is that Unlimited is able to provide the assistance in order to help individuals with special needs find success in the church setting. Unlimited ministry does not provide therapy, behavior modification programs, or medical intervention. To the best of our abilities, our ministry team will strive to follow guidance from and utilize tools provided by parents. Medical assistance will be provided in emergency situations.
*Times are 6-8pm for each date
Parents of children with special needs can leave their children — both those with and without special needs — at Pathway Church and enjoy an evening to themselves. Unlimited staff will provide fun activities for the kids, which will include a bouncy house, Wii, a movie, a snack, and more. After you sign up, a member of the Unlimited staff will contact you to conduct a brief interview before your child(ren) may attend. This is to ensure that we can provide the best care for your child. If you are interested in volunteering for a respite event, email Jenna Hannum.
