Start a rEcess
Respite is a strategic way to begin serving families where they need it most.
We will equip your team with everything you need to start growing relationships faster. We provide training, program curriculum, web based registration and communication tools, and ongoing ministry consulting as you expand the welcome of your church!
WHAT WE PROVIDE
We’ve developed a model for rEcess to make things as smooth as possible for you and your church to build relationships with families experiencing disability and have a safe and fun respite experience. We provide:
- Training for your Leadership Team
- Ministry Consulting
If you have a question on broader disability ministry, we’d love to help. 99 Balloons curates a network of disability professionals committed to seeing your ministry thrive. We can set up conference calls, consultation visits, or a arrange for one of our ambassadors to come and speak at your church.
rEcess Hub is the online home for all rEcess sites. It provides web based registration, an online training suite, record keeping, and photo tool.
- Training for your new volunteers
We provide everything you need to guarantee your rEcess volunteers are set up for success.
- Monthly Conference Calls
Monthly, our staff makes themselves available to our sites for Q & A, troubleshooting, and further training
- Plug and Play programming
The rEcess tookit is offered to rEcessPlus, partners on an annual basis. It contains exciting themes and programming for your 1-2-1 track and for your siblings.
WHAT YOU PROVIDE
You have seen the model we have developed for recess, but a few things you will need to help provide.
Facilities: Most rEcess Sites are able to host rEcess at their church facility. However, if that isn’t possible, many sites have had success reaching out to their community.
People: No experience is necessary. All training will be provided, and we’d love to equip you on effective ways to recruit and manage volunteers.
Elbow Grease: We’ll take you as far as we can before passing the baton to your team.
