The purpose of our ministry is to support and serve the family affected by special needs and to inspire and encourage the local church to welcome, assimilate and nurture those affected by special needs into their church family.

You may have noticed a few changes with Grace Without Margins!
We are excited about our new logo!
I thought I would give you a little explanation on why we chose the logo we did. We chose the color blue because it communicates strength, peace, and serenity. We chose to have the watercolor extending beyond the borders in hopes of diminishing the borders we often have in our churches. If there are no borders, hopefully there are no margins! And lastly, we wanted to include the butterfly. I have used the butterfly to communicate with my students over the years. During my years of teaching I read the book, The Butterfly Effect by Andy Andrews to my students. I want them to understand the difference their efforts can make around the world when they welcome people that happen to have a disability into their lives and hearts.
We have also made a number of changes to our website. We want to provide more help and encouragement to those that are serving in disability ministry or simply want to support a loved one. Our website is:
Bill and I are simple people just trying to do what God has called us to and we are enjoying the journey tremendously! We have been training churches on location for about six years now but we feel called to make training available online as well. We are excited to be partnering with ministries in other countries and hope that partnership continues to grow. The link to view and register for courses is provided below:

We greatly appreciate the number of people that have been so encouraging to us in ministry and have invested in our growth and understanding. And most of all, we are grateful to the children and adults that have changed our perspectives on ourselves and others over the years.
