Special Needs

At Collierville First Baptist Church, we believe that every person, regardless of disability, exists to glorify God and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The S.H.IN.E. Ministry strives to guide individuals in strengthening their relationship with Christ and others in a safe and unique way.

The S.H.IN.E. Ministry is our Special Needs Ministry.  S.H.IN.E. stands for Seeing Him IN Everyone.  Jesus went out of His way to seek out those with special needs and we want to do the same here at Collierville First Baptist. Our S.H.IN.E. Ministry expands from babies through adults.
