Special Needs Ministry

Brook Hills welcomes all children and students — including those who need unique care and attention — to learn about Jesus and enjoy being a part of our faith family.


If your child (birth-high school) has a special need that requires extra care, please tell us more. We want to customize a care plan for them that ensures they are safe and able to learn about Jesus, whatever their need. We put together a Parent Helps Resource to answer a few frequently asked questions. Please complete the form below, and our Special Needs Coordinator will be in touch with you to discuss the next steps for your child.

Serve With Us

If you'd like to consider serving children and students with special needs, we'd love to talk with you about being a Buddy. Buddies are adults who give dedicated care and attention to children and students needing a special friend while at church.

Volunteer to be a Buddy

What does it look like to serve as a Buddy?

“Oh, how wonderful! It makes my heart happy to serve as a Buddy. I look forward to Sundays!”   — Brie Brown

Serve Regularly – Most often, this opportunity is for those who are able to serve on a weekly or bi-monthly basis. Buddies may begin serving at any point during the year and serve during one of the Sunday morning gatherings or Wednesday evenings.

Serve Periodically – We also have opportunities to serve special needs children, students, families, and Buddies on a periodic or occasional basis during special events and activities. These could include, for example, Faith Family Gatherings, Prayer Gatherings, student camps or conferences, short-term Focus Studies (i.e. Griefshare), Membership Classes, or other family events.
