People with intellectual disabilities have been called by God to offer their gifts and talents to the ministries of faith communities–including the communities’ caring ministries. Like their typically-functioning brothers and sisters in Christ, Christians with intellectual disabilities have been called to both give and receive pastoral support and care. What might a ministry of truly collaborative pastoral care look like in a faith community? Drawing on her recent book on the subject, Anna Kate Shurley considers how person-centered practices of support can inform a ministry of pastoral care for all of God’s people.
