Started in 2013 Beyond Limits, a collaborative partnership venture based at Bethany College, offers a two-year, residential post-secondary Christian campus experience and Beyond Limits life skills certificate for qualified young adult students with developmental disabilities. The program includes a customized selection of audited Bethany classes, independent living skills courses, and on-campus job placement and coaching to gain work skills in Bethany’s student work/study program.
Beyond Limits shared their desire to take their work to other Christian colleges. They don’t want to do an exact replica of what they have done at Bethany. With that in mind, how might they think about expanding their reach? Specifically, they asked Barnabas partners:
• to help brainstorm considerations, ideas and questions regarding expanding their program
Following Beyond Limits’ presentation, Barnabas partners put their time, talents and connections to work for this inspiring ministry. Feedback included:
• Partners offered several important questions for Beyond Limits to consider and answer as they determine what an expansion of their organization looks like.
• They were encouraged to focus their presentation and had a record number of partners interested in attending their Deeper Dive.
