The puzzle piece of autism, a traditional representation of this population, can be an important part of Jesus’ puzzle. Recent data shows that about 1 in 44 children have been identified with autism spectrum disorder*, but few churches have ministries that serve these children and their families. This course is designed for individuals who are looking to design new autism ministries within their churches, and reflects decades of personal experience: The instructor and his wife are parents of three autistic sons. The autism ministry he has developed in churches where he is a youth worker let similar families and friends of autistic persons know the church values their relationships with God and want their children to develop divine relationships as well.
