The free gift of God's grace has made all of us right with him. Christ Jesus paid the price to set us free.
--Romans 3:24 (NIRV)

Who We Are

We are a motley group of people, working together to encourage the Church to recognize people of all abilities as full and active members of the body of Christ.

Our community extends across local congregations, around New England, and throughout the country to include all people, with and without all kinds of disabilities, who know, or want to know, the life-giving love of Jesus Christ and who want to share that love in community with other people of faith.

The Ministry is led by Susan Lindberg Haley, a diaconal minister in the New England Synod of the ELCA. Though Susan is most familiar with serving people with developmental disabilities or mental illness, she knows that the Body is only complete when people of all abilities and disabilities are recognized, welcomed, and included. There is work to be done!

What We Believe

All Right Ministry is grounded in the biblical understanding that “The free gift of God’s grace makes all of us right with him. Christ Jesus paid the price to set us free” (Romans 3:24; New International Reader’s Version). We are ALL right with God. We are ALL free. Through Christ.

What We Do

We proclaim the good news of God’s love for all people by:
  • offering lively and interactive worship and fellowship
  • consulting with congregations on specific opportunities for inclusion
  • conducting workshops on the theology and practice of welcoming all people into the body of Christ
  • offering pastoral support and Bible study with people with mental illness

Participants say:

“When you start talking about getting involved in the church, the first thing we think of, usually, is worship - because everything we do comes from that adoration and praise of God.”

“We’re always moving (when we worship together). It’s so unLutheran but you’ve got to have some joy!”

Andrew describes the mission of the All Right Ministry in these words: “We’re all God’s children and we should never be forgotten.”
