Matthew's Ministry

Awareness, outreach and support for persons with special needs and their families.

It is our desire to show the love of God to all people and to incorporate them into the life of the church.

Our child has a place where he can be himself and where he can feel loved. He is learning about God and creating his faith journey through that. It's such a relief to have Matthew's Ministry here.

Our Purpose

Matthew’s Ministry supports, empowers and encourages individuals of all abilities to become deeply committed Christians by knowing, loving and serving God.

At Resurrection Leawood, we have just moved into a new space in Building B that will allow us to better meet the needs of our Matthew's Ministry participants.
