About Us

Special Needs Initiative

“Sometimes even the greatest joys bring challenge, and children with special needs inspire a very special love.” This is a forgotten and neglected population. When we say we “Love Our City” — we mean every family, every individual, and every child. We’re not leaving those with special needs behind. We are grabbing their hand, embracing them, and loving them.

Destiny Heroes

Destiny Heroes is a special needs ministry for individuals and families affected by a disability resulting from physical, developmental, sensory, or cognitive challenges. Heroes was founded upon the ministry of Jesus Christ, especially as portrayed in the Gospels. It’s apparent Jesus had compassion for those with a variety of challenges, and it’s the goal of this ministry to emulate Christ in all we do. Our mission is to serve, evangelize, and disciple people affected by disabilities who in turn will have opportunities to do the same for others. Our vision is for every individual in our region affected by disability to have the opportunity for a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ and be fully included in the Body of Believers at Destiny.

What we offer

Do you have a family member affected by Special Needs? You and your family are welcome here!

Sundays: We offer a full-inclusion program during both services by utilizing our kind and loving volunteers (Buddies) so your child can attend a typical youth ministry class (all ages welcome).

Email specialneeds@loveourcity.com with any questions you may have.

Volunteer

Those interested in serving are asked to complete an online volunteer application and get Live Scan fingerprinted. Forms for this service can be picked up at the main church office and taken to 5 Star Fingerprinting in Rocklin.
