His Workmanship

DBC's ministry for individuals with special needs.

“We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which He prepared beforehand that we would walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10

We offer opportunities for individuals with diverse needs and abilities and their families to grow spiritually, engage with their church family and serve others as a witness for Jesus. Our mission is to teach individuals the meaning of God’s word, what He says about who He created them to be and help them walk in the purposes He has planned for them.

Our ministry has teams of caring and committed volunteers who seek to teach, engage, and love individuals with special needs and their caregivers and families. Each classroom has a team, or in the Buddy for Me program, a volunteer, who imparts bible truths in a multi-sensory manner to help each individual engage and contribute in the classroom according to their abilities.
