CERTIFICATE OF CHRISTIAN DISABILITY MINISTRY (CCDM) PROGRAMME

In response to the Great Commission, churches need to develop themselves into disability-inclusive Christian communities to reflect the Gospel’s radical welcome to all nations.

To support this, Koinonia Inclusion Network (KIN) has collaborated with Scripture Union Singapore to co-organise the Certificate of Christian Disability Ministry (CCDM) programme.

The CCDM aims to train a generation of disability leaders for churches in Singapore and the region.

The CCDM programme is divided into three modules (two days of training each):

1. Knowing People with Disabilities
This module provides an introduction to people with disabilities, disability theology and the disability sector.

2. Sowing the Seeds of Faith
This module teaches Christian education teachers how to create an inclusive learning environment and curriculum for children with special needs.

3. Growing as One Body
This module aims to provide leaders of disability ministries with the necessary theological insight and know-how to effectively lead their ministry.

Participants who complete all three modules will receive the Certificate in Christian Disability Ministry. 

Participants can also opt to take the CCDM programme for seminary credit (involves completing additional readings and assignments) with KIN seminary partner, the Biblical Graduate School of Theology (BGST).
