The volunteers and staff of Anabaptist Disabilities Network welcome invitations to speak or preach in your congregation and other settings. We are eager to help you initiate conversations in your congregation about hospitality to people with disabilities.

ADN speakers include (pictured above, left to right): ​Kathleen Nofziger Yeakey, Denise Reesor, Rebekah Flores, Mark Pickens, Deborah Ferber; second row: Jim Smith, Kathy Dickson, Milt Stoltzfus, Jill Stemple

Meet our speakers.

If distance and travel costs make an in-person presence at your event prohibitive, we would be happy to work with you to bring a speaker into your setting through videoconference technology.

All our speakers are strong communicators of ADN’s vision that faith communities are transformed when individuals with disabilities and their God-given gifts and experiences enjoy full inclusion in the Body of Christ.
