The Developmental Disabilities Ministry assists North Carolina Baptists in their efforts to minister to individuals with special needs and their families.
The Baptist State Convention offers training opportunities, special camps, retreats, day camps and family events on a statewide basis throughout the year.
The flagship events are Happiness Retreats, which reach hundreds of people each year. Specialists across the state are also available to help churches begin and excel in developmental disability ministry.
Due to ongoing concerns over COVID-19, the 2020 Happiness Retreats have been canceled.
