SERVING PEOPLE WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES: A COMPARATIVE INVESTIGATION OF THE PERCEPTION OF FAMILY CAREGIVERS AND KANSAS CLERGY

As many of you know, I have been working on my doctorate from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary at Evangel University (AGTS@EU)  After many years, my project dissertation on comparative perceptions between clergy members and family caregivers of persons with disability is finally completed.

Some of the components of the study have been shared on this blog over the last few years, but now the full copy is available.

I believe that my research will help other disability organizations, churches, parents, and pastors collaborate even better in the future.

The full dissertation and its appendixes are 272 pages long and is available free of any charge for any researcher.  It has been uploaded to PRO-QUEST.

The seminary is also graciously hosting it at their site.  The link for that is here.

If you haven't been able to obtain a copy and would like one, simply contact me (mjmiller@abilityed.com) and I will be glad to forward you a copy.

Thank you for serving Jesus Christ, the church, and people with vital abilities.
