JAF Ministries backed by US author/singer Joni Eareckson Tada

AMERICAN author, singer and artist Joni Eareckson Tada is backing the UK branch of her international outreach, JAF Ministries which was launched on 28th April.
Through The Roof, as the British outreach is known, exists to promote greater integration of churches and people with disabilities. "People with disabilities were a major focus of Jesus' work," said newly appointed Through The Roof director Paul Dicken, "yet churches are often woefully behind secular agencies in their outreach, facilities to attitudes towards disabled people." Joni will be hosting three major presentations in Belfast, London and Salisbury in October to promote the ministry. She will be joined for an evening of worship, teaching and evangelism by worship leader Chris Bowater.
