Developmental Disabilities Ministry
assists North Carolina Baptists in their efforts to minister to special needs individuals and their families. The Convention offers training opportunities, special camps and retreats, day camps, and family events on a statewide basis throughout the year.
The flagship events are Happiness Retreats, which reach hundreds of people each year. Specialists across the state are also available to help churches begin and excel in developmental disability ministry.
Many churches enjoy using the Special Education Day bulletin insert to help them celebrate a special day in March.
