How Access Ministries Impacts Families

October 3, 2022

Access Ministries strives to create a welcoming environment for individuals with disabilities and their families. From children all the way to adulthood, Access Ministries offers an array of services for families.

The Kemp family began attending Northland in 2014. The church was recommended to them as a great and supportive place for families with special needs. Heather Subbert, former Director of Access Ministries, was vital in connecting with the Kemp family and making them feel welcome. She has continued to be an incredible support to the Kemp family.

As the Kemp family continued attending Northland, they were connected with other families within Access Ministries. 

“Being involved in this ministry made a positive impact on our lives as we have engaged with so many volunteers who have loved on our family,” said Randy Kemp. “The lifelong relationships have been a blessing through both good and challenging times.”

The weeks, months, and years that followed the Kemp family’s initial attendance have been remarkable. They know that as a family of children with special needs, they are created in His image.

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. - Genesis 1:27

“In many aspects involving our children, our Heavenly Father is using them to help us to be “conformed to the image of his son...” (Romans 8:29)” said Randy. “We are so grateful for Northland Church and the vision for EVERYONE to be Fully Alive in Jesus!

Northland Church and Access Ministries are thrilled to have Randy on staff as Access Ministries Director to continue serving families just like his own.
