Faith communities have a challenge, and it's that their regular ministries and their disability ministries often fall short of truly providing individuals and families with special needs with an environment where they can come exactly as they are and worship in the way that they were created to.

Jared Ginsburg, Director of The Hideout at Dilworth Church in Charlotte, is creating a multisensory, inclusive, safe space for spiritual exploration where those who struggle to "fit in" in traditional church can find a place to belong and participate in worship. He says, "Five year olds sit next to fifty year olds, and walk away with a meaningful connection with God. The truth is, we all have special needs! Some are just more visible that others."

To Jared, this is what the Kingdom of Heaven looks like - joy, creativity, inclusion, celebration, and safety!

A former public school educator with an interfaith background, Jared has seen the troubling results of special needs children fall through the cracks without early interventon or communitites that properly support them. It's especially tragic when that community is your church. He wants to change that and engage clergy in conversations about the intersection of disabilities and faith.
