Conference Inclusion Team (CIT)

The Conference Inclusion Team (the CIT), is a ministry team working to raise the awareness and acceptance into church life of people living with a disability and/or a mental health challenge. Partly guided by the United Church of Christ Disabilities Ministry (the UCCDM) and the United Church of Christ Mental Health Network (the UCCMHN) nationally, and also guided by the CIT in the Rocky Mountain Conference, individual team members work with their local churches and associations to help spread the news of inclusion and offer resources and programs on inclusion for local churches wishing to serve all people, some 20% of whom also live with a disability. CIT members will provide assistance to churches wanting to make this important transformation of acceptance and welcome. The team now conducts quarterly conference calls to coordinate its efforts and provide support and new ideas for team members. For more information, email Kevin Pettit, chair of the RMC UCC CIT.
