Church Relations

Working with churches and faith communities

Our faith communities are better when everyone feels welcome, but churches aren’t always a safe space for people with disabilities.

We’re working to change that.

Mosaic works with communities, pastors and other leaders to help people with disabilities find a welcoming home in the church. We offer support in a variety of ways.

Supporting Faith Communities

Mosaic works to help faith communities welcome people with disabilities. We provide support through coaching, curriculum modification, behavioral support and more.

Additionally, our innovative Rejoicing Spirits ministry helps congregations start new worship services that allow people with disabilities to be themselves.

Educating Faith Leaders

Most faith leaders want to welcome people with disabilities into worship and fellowship, but aren’t sure how. Mosaic works to educate future church leaders in partnership with seminaries and provides service learning retreats for groups on our Axtell campus.

Additionally, our relational ministry leaders are happy to facilitate worship, lead adult forums, preach and more.

The Rev. Mark and Kathy Helge Joyful Spirits Endowment Fund

 

Established in 2019, The Rev. Mark and Kathy Helge Joyful Spirits Endowment Fund is specifically dedicated to Mosaic’s church relations and spiritual life work.

In addition to formal items like Mosaic’s Rejoicing Spirits worship and seminary training program, Mosaic staff also act as a professional resource helping churches interact with families of people with disabilities.

To Love and Serve

It is Mosaic’s legacy to love and serve our neighbor, both near and far.  While many times churches, deacons, faith leaders and pastors are called upon to help others, Mosaic hopes to connect with faith communities and ask, “How can we help you?”

The church is not whole unless everyone is welcome and included. —The Rev. Dr. David deFreese, Vice President of Church Relations
