Welcome to the Accessible Church Podcast, a ministry of Disability Matters, where our hope is to encourage every church to embrace disability. In this podcast we share honest and real stories and perspectives about disability and the church. We believe these stories will teach, challenge, and inspire you.

I am thankful for this new podcast. I stumbled upon it while searching online for anything that would help my church be more open to people of all abilities. What I didn't expect was the personal impact. As a single mom living with my own physical/medical disability and raising 3 wonderful teens on the Spectrum I found myself deeply moved and impacted by the shared experiences of the presenters. I also am being wonderfully challenged and learning of how I can help and love others. I highly recommend this podcast for Church Leaders, Youth workers, Parents and anyone willing to walk with people a little different from yourself.
Support for Families and Church Ministries
As an advocate for persons with disabilities I highly recommend this podcast. Parishes should seriously consider listening to Ellen's podcasts. I love the variety of topics. Great job!
