Resources for Individuals Seeking Ways to Support Inclusivity in their Community

Ministry Resources within the Seventh-day Adventist Church

  • Our mission is to encourage local congregations to give special attention to individuals with disabilities. We also encourage them to develop programs for witnessing to people with disabilities and make our churches accessible to all.

  • The motto of this ministry states clearly an underlying principle on which its existence is based: “All are gifted, needed and treasured!” APM is about caring and inclusiveness. It involves education and acceptance for everyone and the development of plans that will help bring about opportunities for involvement and a sense of belonging for the special needs person. It is a ministry that calls all to a life of service.

Legal Definition of Blindness

The legal definition of blindness is "visual acuity of not greater than 20/200 in the better eye with correction or a field not subtending an angle greater than 20 degrees." However, in a special issue on Low Vision and Blindness in 2005, Kenneth Jernigan wrote a wonderful piece titled   "A Definition of Blindness" [click on the title to read the article] for the National Federation of the Blind which provides context and richness to the complexities of labeling this or any medical condition.
