Perceptions of leaders toward inclusion of children with neurodevelopmental disorders in spiritual formation programs: A case of Christ Is The Answer Ministries in Kenya

Perceptions of Leaders Toward Inclusion of Children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders in Spiritual Formation Programs

A well-informed perception of leaders is critical in how members of worship congregations experience spiritual formation. This study focuses on six selected worship congregations of Kenya’s Christ Is The Answer Ministries (CITAM). The Straussian grounded-theory design was employed to analyze interviews and focus group discussions.

The findings indicated that inclusive spiritual formation for children with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) in worship congregations is nonexistent due to leaders’ perceptions regarding NDDs. The study recommends training worship congregational leaders to address the spiritual formation needs of children with NDDs.
