One in five people lives with some form of disability, but many churches are missing the opportunity to be in ministry with them. David and Harriet Watson, whose nine-year-old son Sean has Down syndrome, will talk about ways churches can be more effective in bringing the Gospel to people with disabilities and their families.
Dr. David & Harriet Watson
Nine years ago, when their son Sean was born, David and Harriet Watson found out that he had Down Syndrome. Their journey since that time has been one of faith, hope, and love–and the greatest of these is love. David serves as Academic Dean and Associate Professor of New Testament at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio. He has a PhD from Southern Methodist University and is an ordained elder in the West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church.
