Special Touch Ministry

Special Touch Ministry- Nutmeg Chapter



The mission of Special Touch Ministry is to ease and enrich the lives of people impacted by disability.  


Disability Friendly Church Certification.
A 60 question survey is offered to churches interested in finding out more about becoming a disability friendly church. The survey objectively evaluates "disability friendliness" currently at the church facility, and upon completion. Participants are certified at one of four levels: bronze, silver, gold or platinum. With certification, churches are provided with an online listing in our directory and monthly training information. 
Disability Ministry Training for Pastors/Christian Leaders
Trainings are offered throughout the year, in person or over the phone/skype for individuals interested in disability ministry. 
Local Nutmeg Chapter Events
Free events are held every other month on Saturdays, including crafts, games, socialization, lunch, worship, Sunday school lesson/Gospel presentation and prayer. The events are geared towards individuals and families impacted by disability. 
Summer Getaways
The getaways are five day vacation retreats for people with intellectual/physical disabilities. The getaways have a evangelistic and discipleship focus and are offered across the United States. The New England Regional Getaway is hosted each year in Great Barrington, MA.
