The Ferrini’s Do Focus on the Family!

We’re pleased to share that our friends and colleagues Cindi and Joe Ferrini will be featured this coming Thursday (May 31) and Friday (June 1) as guests of Jim Daly and John Fuller on the Focus on the Family radio broadcast. Cindi and Joe will be speaking on the topic Unexpected Journey-When Special Needs Change Our Course.

Cindi and Joe did a wonderful job during last year’s Inclusion Fusion conference sharing from their experiences raising a son (Joey) with a developmental disability. Here’s a link to an earlier post on this blog with lots of great resources from Cindi and Joe, along with the video of their 2011 Inclusion Fusion presentation.

Here’s a link to the Focus on the Family website where you can find more information on the Ferrini’s, order a copy of Unexpected Journey, access an eight article module on Marriage and Special Needs, identify a radio station in your area carrying the broadcast and join a live forum with Cindi from 6:00 to 8:00 PM Eastern on Friday to answer your questions about raising children with special needs.

Our team at Key Ministry couldn’t possibly be more pleased for the platform Cindi and Joe have been given to help advance the cause of families of children with disabilities in the local church. Join us in checking out their two part interview with Jim Daly and John Fuller this week on Focus on the Family!

Key Ministry’s mission is to help churches reach families affected by disability by providing FREE resources to pastors, volunteers, and individuals who wish to create an inclusive ministry environment.  We invite you to partner with us as we advance the Kingdom through our collaboration with the local and global church.  We have designed our Key Catalog to create fun opportunities for our ministry supporters to join in our mission.  The Key Catalog includes a variety of gift options for every budget.  A gift from the Key Catalog also makes for an amazing gift for a friend or loved one who is passionate about seeing the Body of Christ become more inclusive of people with disabilities.  Click here to check it out!
