What we do
What we do – Mephibosheth Ministry has developed, often in partnership with others, books, bible studies, seminars, conferences and various events to help local churches identify and reach out into their local communities and encourage those families.
The mission statement of Mephibosheth Ministry – is to
encourage and equip the local church of Jesus to reach out into their communities and minister the gospel of Jesus to those families who have been affected by a disability.
WHO WE ARE
