Description

Sixty-one million adults in the United States (26% of the population) are living with a disability (CDC, 2019). Many people with disabilities experience barriers to access in their communities as well as their churches. Not only are these barriers physical, but they can also be social. This poster will summarize the findings from our literature review regarding the experiences of people with disabilities in church social and religious activity involvement. It will then present a proposal for analysis of the 2018 Global Church Survey data, using the North American Division sample.
