Beyond Suffering: An Introduction for Christian Leaders is designed to serve as a starting point for pastors and leaders seeking a better understanding of God's plan for disability and suffering. The number of people with disabilities are growing around the world and many of them do not have a church family. In the U.S. alone, nearly 65 million people are affected by disability. The need is great! This introductory training will inspire you to lead your congregation into deeper ministry to families looking for love and acceptance.

Whether you are a senior pastor, children's pastor, lay leader or volunteer, you may be called upon to address some of life's hardest questions about suffering and disability from a biblical perspective. This four lesson training will lay the foundation for beginning or expanding your ministry to those affected by disability — brining them into the body of Christ as Jesus intended when he said, "Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame ... that my house will be full." (Luke 14: 21, 23)
