Our Mission: It is possible to be dedicated to sharing the love of Christ with children, youth and adults with disabilities and their families. It is possible for each of us to learn valuable life lessons from those who have a disability. It is possible for people with disabilities to be fully included in the life of the Church. It is possible for us to focus on conforming into the image of Christ and not with conforming into the image of 'normal". It is possible for people with disabilities to minister and serve others as they also are members of the body of Christ who have been equipped by God with spritual gifts. It is NOT possible for us to ignore ministering to those with disabilities and their families, for we have all been created in God's image and have all been fearfully and wonderfully made and God's desire is that none would perish. Dayspring...where ministering to those with disabilities is "Mission Possible".
