Opening Doors for All Abilities-Making AODA a Priority at Your Church

Opening Doors for All Abilities
Opening Doors for All Abilities

 

AODA, Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, has been enforced as law since 2005. It mandates all organizations to provide equal access to business and programs to all persons with disabilities.

This day is an opportunity to learn what you can do to meet the legal requirements for AODA within your church and programs.

There is a general session with an overview of the AODA legislation. A panel of representatives from different disability groups will explain how accessibility affects their participation at our churches. Four concurrent workshops after the general session will address the applications of AODA in the areas of:

  • Philosophy of Inclusion: Pastoral considerations
  • Practical considerations for children and youth ministries
  • Accessible environment
  • Drafting an AODA policy

A list of resources will be provided at the workshop to help you with implementation.

Register now at Registration fees is $10.

This event is organized by the Church Network for Supporting Disabilities and is co-sponsored by Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada and Richmond Hill Christian Community Church.

Join us for an opportunity to learn about the legal requirements for AODA within your church and programs. Keynote speaker and panelists:

Rev. Rob Miner – Keynote

Mrs. Lynne Leyland – Panelist

Rev. Danny Leung – Panelist

事工消息

感謝主,四月中的五公里跑步/步行籌款很成功。上帝帶領60位明眼和視障人士參與這活動。在这次活動,讓其他機構的參加者得著鼓勵,並譲他們認識JBVC.感恩籌款目標能達成,並拿到豐業銀行其中機構籌款最多的奨項。見證神奇妙作為,看顧JBVC這微小,不多人知道的機構。在此感謝每位參與及贊助的弟兄姊妹。

感謝主!七月份JBVC有兩位VIP參加 2016 國際北美地區金茶王比賽。在衆多有経驗的明眼參賽者中,最後VIP 獲得亞軍和安慰獎。上帝再次得著榮耀。盼望日後 JBVC 有更多機會與不同機構和教會合作,將神所賜服侍教會和社區。

感謝主,上帝帶領一位從夏威夷來的朋友,來到culture Cafe 和Pastor Danny見面。三個月前這位朋友不能接受自己視力漸漸消沉。Rev. Danny 和他分享神在他生命中的見証。他得著鼓勵。二星期後,他決志信主。現在返教會,祈禱會及主日学。生命變得積極。他分享他現在人生,在神裏有盼望。

 

代禱事項:

  1. 求神帶領義工到cafe and JBVC 事工事奉
  2. 盼望上帝呼召一位同工在JBVC事奉。
  3. 求神帶領,計劃在2017開展在密市服侍當地的失明人士的事工。
  4. 2017JBVC經費,求神藉教會及弟兄姊妹愛心的支持。

Ministry Update

 

60 volunteers and VIPs were able to reach beyond the set targets in 2016 Scotia Bank Charity Challenge in Mississauga marathon!

 

Thanks to the Lord – the 5km marathon in April was immensely successful! God has led 60 sighted and VIPs to participate in this event. Not only were other participating organizations encouraged via this event, they also got to know more about JBVC. We are grateful that the fundraising target was reached, and we have received an award from the Scotia Bank for raising the most amounts of funds. It was a great testimony of God’s amazing works. We’re so grateful that God has watched over JBVC, considering it is still a small, lesser-known charity.

 

Once again, we would like to thank you every brother & sister who participated or sponsored the event!

VIPs won the 2016 international America Region kanCha Award!

 

Thanks to the Lord – in July, Two VIPs competed in the 2016 International North America region Kamcha competition. Among all the experienced, sighted candidates, our VIPs were able to obtain the second place! May God be glorified!

 

We hope that in the future, Cultural Café will have more opportunities to collaborate with different organizations and churches, to use the God-given gifts and give back to the society.

From Depression to Meaningful life!

 

Thanks to the Lord – God has led a friend from US to the Cultural Café and met with rev. Danny and his team. Three months ago, he started to suffer from depression because he could not accept the fact that he has become blind. Pastor Danny shared with him the works of God in his life, and this friend was deeply encouraged. Two weeks later, he decided to accept Jesus Christ as his personal god, and now he attends church and listens the bible regularly. He is able to live a life with meaning and hope!

 

Prayer items:

 

1.Pray that God will lead volunteers to serve in the Cultural Café and JBVC.

2.Pray that God will call a colleague to serve in JBVC.

3.Expansion of JBVC’s services to the Mississauga area in 2017

4.Funding for JBVC’s operations in 2017 – we pray that God will support us through offerings from church and brothers & sisters.
