-Roughly 65 million people in America and over 1 billion people worldwide have a disability.
-1 in 5 families is impacted by disability.
Rev. Charlie & Debbie Chivers became full-time Missionaries in response to this need and in 1982 Special Touch Ministry was born. Over the years, others caught this vision, partnering with them to bring Special Touch into a world-reaching ministry, further opening the doors of the church to people with disabilities.
Special Touch Ministry is available to help churches move forward in welcoming and supporting families and individuals impacted by disability. Almost 40 years later, our Mission continues - to ease and enrich the lives of peopleimpacted by disability. They're here for the parent of an Autistic child overwhelmed with learning from home, for the caregiver who is sleeping on a mattress in her husband's hospice room, the elderly woman who cannot see well but wants to "read" a bible, or the man who has Cerebral Palsy and is wondering if he should stay working at his job. Join with them in introducing Christ and to reassure them that He cares about the things that concern and weigh on their hearts. That He is there to comfort us, to hold us and that He has good plans for our tomorrow .Special Touch Ministry
