four young peopleThe Baylor Center for Developmental Disabilities within the Baylor University School of Education announced today that it will join With Ministries on a new program called Worship as One: Learning with Children with Disabilities about Worship and Prayer. Lilly Endowment Inc. is supporting the program with a $300,000 grant to With Ministries.

The grant was made through Lilly Endowment’s Nurturing Children Through Worship and Prayer Initiative. The aim of the national initiative is to support faith-based organizations as they help children grow in faith and deepen their relationships with God.

“We want every church to be faithful in welcoming and embracing children with disabilities and their families in worship and life together,” said Erik Carter, Ph.D., The Luther Sweet Endowed Chair in Disabilities and executive director of the Baylor Center for Developmental Disabilities. “This much-needed project will invite, equip, and support churches and families to re-envision the ways in which children with developmental disabilities participate in worship and prayer—both on and between Sundays.”
