We are excited to welcome Carla Clarke to our MDSI Provincial Ministries team as the new Director of Exceptionalities and Inclusion Ministries. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and will be a tremendous asset to the PAONL.
From our MDSI Executive Director: “In a 2017 survey, it was revealed that 23.6% of the provincial population aged 15 and over were persons with disabilities.1 We believe that it is our scriptural calling and responsibility to share in the duty of every local church and ministry to provide education and training about disability, and to help create safe and inclusive spaces in our churches, camps, and events for people with exceptionalities. The PAONL has approved the creation of Provincial Exceptionalities and Inclusion Ministries to begin to engage this on a provincial level. We look forward to working with local churches to strengthen their ministry to this significant demographic of our province.”
