Do you desire guidance and resources as you seek to fully include persons with varied abilities within your congregation? Whether you’ve been including persons with disabilities for years or are just beginning on the journey, our team of consultants is eager to partner with your church as you move forward in God’s call to create communities of belonging.  

Through annual Membership, All Belong equips you, your staff, and volunteers in best practices for building belonging. By enrolling, you are invited to gatherings where our team of church consultants, other inclusion experts and other Members share ideas about faithfully building belonging. Our church consultants coach, train and support you, plus your entire congregation gains access to our online library of Member Resources for inclusive worship. You also get discounts and more! s:
