Upcoming Event! Jennifer Allen to Speak at ACU Summit
“The Less Traveled Path to Christ: Families, Autism and the Church Today”
Jennifer Allen, 9:30-10:15 AM
Autism, depression, anxiety, ADHD, and developmental delays often keep kids (and parents) away from church. The Great Commission instructs us to go and preach the gospel to all nations, to all people … and as for those with disabilities, we must put aside our fear of “different” by first understanding the uniquely wired brain and then providing accommodation(s). Jennifer Allen will share her family’s personal journey of having a child diagnosed with autism and how the less traveled path to Jesus, though oftentimes rocky, offers beautiful vistas that neurotypicals seldom witness. This session is for the church to better understand the challenges that face these families along with suggested accommodations and especially for the parent torn about church and their children.
When: Tuesday, September 17th
Time: 9:30a – 10:15a
