Meet the Campbells, Special Needs Consultants #SITD

Cathy & Ken @ SITD 2014 Dallas
I got to meet Rev. Dr. Ken Campbell and his wife Cathy today.  Ken serves with MNA (Missions North America) in church planting with the Presbyterian Church in America.  Shortly after beginning his D.Min program in 2006, his wife received a spinal cord injury.

Fortunately, Gordon Conwell did not let him drop out of his D.Min project and he was able to shift it towards a disability focus. Currently he serves as a special needs consultant and is helping shape church planters with a spirit of hospitality. His academic work focuses on developing best practices for special needs programs in churches and helping pastors effectively utilize resources in developing intentional community with people with disabilities. You can reach him at

Judging by his cap, I'm guessing he's rooting for Calvin College to beat Hope College in basketball this year.  As a one Jan-term alum of Calvin, I'll join in...Go Knights!!
