Special Needs Ministry

Our Special Needs Ministry—we like to call it “Special Friends”—is a Christ-centered environment with a person-centered emphasis that enables families to focus on the entire family's spiritual growth. At Prestonwood, we view special needs as a different ability rather than a disability.

If you will be visiting us for the first time, we have provided a Children’s Ministry Visitor Form, which may be printed, filled out, and brought to the Children’s Ministry reception desk to help speed up your check-in.

Plano Campus

With a program for children and a separate ministry for youth/adults, each person can be ministered to by qualified staff at his or her own age level, helping to give the inspiration and freshness of His presence for which these families long.

With the addition of five new classrooms designed specifically for Special Friends in the Saunders Children's Building on the Plano Campus, this ministry is growing to meet the physical as well as the spiritual needs of our Special Friends.

Bible Fellowship and fun activities are provided during the Saturday Night Worship Service and both Sunday Worship Services. We would love for you to join us!
