Special Needs

All children are a gift from the Lord, “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Second's Shine Ministry strives to effectively communicate the gospel to individuals with physical and intellectual disabilities and to eliminate barriers that prevent their families from living in community with the body of Christ.
