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.

Shelby Wallace

Matthew's Ministry Program Director

Shelby Wallace serves as the Program Director for Matthew’s Ministry. Shelby has had a heart for individuals with special needs for as long as she can remember. From peer mentoring at Blue Valley High School, coaching the K-State Cheer Fierce Cats in college, to now helping our Matthew’s Ministry participants grow in their faith and walk with Christ!

In her free time, you can find Shelby cheering on the K-State Wildcats (EMAW!), spending time with family, or laying out by the pool every chance she can get. She is getting a new last name in December thanks to the most special and amazing proposal at Family Night Out!

Shelby is so thankful to be a part of Matthew’s Ministry. It has not only impacted so many lives of individuals with special needs, their families, and the community; but, it has impacted her faith and relationship with Christ in so many incredible ways.
