What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Mission: We coach Christian communities, mentor people, and encourage families affected by disability until the table is full. Vision: To exchange a life without God for a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. To exchange a life of isolation for a life in community. To exchange a life of low expectation for an abundant life with purpose.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Mentoring

We offer individualized mentoring to people with disabilities. The purpose is to help people affected by disabilities understand and utilize their gifts and talents. We also help them understand Whose they are and who they are.

Adults

Marriage is hard. Living with disability is hard. Whether disability was known before the wedding, or blindsided the couple later in life, there are extra challenges for couples to live a biblical marriage model. And each couples experiences are different. Few pastoral or professional counselors understand these dynamics. Joan Borton authored The Third Wheel: Embracing the Richness of a Marriage Affected by Disability. This book shares examples from the Bortons and couples across the nation who live with disability in their marriage. These stories, woven together with biblical marriage principles, help the reader strengthen and grow their relationship. Each chapter ends with questions for the couple to consider together. Also included are tips for the friend or church who want to come alongside in support and encouragement. Joan and Jerry Borton also speak on the subject of marriage and disability.

Population(s) Served
Caregivers

Luke 14 Exchange partners with two ministries who host summer camp for the whole family affected by disability. Some of those who attend refer to these weeks as a pocket of Heaven, or coming home, or a big family reunion. Camp is a place where families feel safe and that they are not alone. Our focus is to use our years of experience to provide counsel, support, community, and accurate, applicable Bible teaching. Our two camp partners raise scholarship money to help cover the costs for the families to attend, and cover all the programming costs. There is very little left to bring in speakers or a resource team with our experience. Each summer, we minister to approximately 70 families at two camps.

We'd like to enhance our communication with regular blog posts, and publish more articles, as well as Joan's book on disability and marriage. Along with writing, we will actively pursue increased speaking opportunities.

Outreach (People and Programs)
We're adjusting how we serve at the Dream Center, focusing on relationship building through their Block Party. A new outreach opened for us to teach a Bible study at Noah’s Landing with adults with disabilities. As we continue 1:1 coaching, we'll also develop and implement a process for group coaching, like Page 42. We'll continue to serve at Breakaway Camp and Camp Celebrate. We plan to start a web-based book club on disability-focused books.

Fundraising
We'll continue to build relationships with donors to fund the ministry and meet or exceed our budget. We'll grow the number of donors and the attendance at An Evening at The Table.

Volunteers
We want to ensure our volunteers serve in their strength, and have all the needed supports to thrive. We look forward to developing a broader volunteer team for prayer, outreaches, office assistance.
