All Belong Strengthens Church Membership with Addition of Friendship Ministries
It’s only April and we’ve already seen the mission of All Belong active in powerful ways this year. Our work has continued as churches and schools re-open across the country, and has persevered to connect congregations and students still gathering remotely.
And now, in the spirit of new beginnings and innovative solutions, it is a joy to announce that Friendship Ministries has combined its resources with those of All Belong.
Under the banner of All Belong’s name and enduring mission—to equip congregations and schools to glorify God through purposeful, innovative inclusion of persons with varied abilities—we will together build on Friendship Ministries’ work to serve churches by providing curriculum designed to build relationships within and across local churches and communities.
Friendship Ministries sought out a partnership with a like-minded, Christ-centered ministry focused on inclusion. All Belong joyfully took the opportunity to create a proposal, engage in discussion with Friendship Ministries leadership and, after much prayer and planning, finalize Friendship Ministries as a subsidiary of All Belong – a friendly and positive outcome for all of us.
In many ways this new relationship just makes sense; we have long shared a heart for similar work in churches towards inclusion. We look forward to keeping you updated on the future opportunities this opens up for All Belong’s partners.
In short, we’re excited. We will have more updates coming soon as we share new ways Friendship Ministries resources will be incorporated with All Belong church membership.
