Advocate Press releases history of Aldersgate Special Needs Ministry

Just in time for Christmas, the Advocate Press has released its next book—this one the 20-year history of Aldersgate Special Needs Ministry.

A fully self-sustaining, not-for-profit organization affiliated with the South Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church, Aldersgate Special Needs Ministry was formed in 2003 by family and friends seeking residential solutions for loved ones with developmental disabilities. Aldersgate’s mission is to provide Christian homes with the highest quality of life and greatest level of independence for adults with special needs.

Today they have four homes across the state and one more under construction. All homes are located near Christian communities for the purpose of giving residents a sense of God-inspired inclusion and interaction.

Proceeds from book sales benefit Aldersgate as well as the Advocate.

The Advocate Press is a small publishing arm that produces nonfiction books and devotionals. To date it has produced 21 books and has several more slated for release soon. The mission of the Advocate Press is to produce books of interest to South Carolina United Methodists on matters of faith and to amplify regional voices and those that advocate for the advancement of the kingdom of God.
