Special Needs

“Before I formed you in the womb
I knew you,
and before you were born
I set you apart
I appointed you a prophet to the nations”
- Jeremiah 1:5

The purpose of special needs at Eleven22 is to glorify God by fostering children with special needs to DISCOVER their identity in Jesus Christ and their God-given place and purpose in the body of believers, DEEPEN their relationship with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior through worship, word, learning, and community and to champion God’s sovereignty in the midst of disability by becoming equipped with their God-given spiritual gifts so that they can LOVE ALL PEOPLE by being a disciple-making disciple.

We would love to meet your family. Please join us at any of our campuses. See the ministry descriptions below to choose what environment better suits your child’s needs.


We encourage you to email us at specialneeds@coe22.com before your first visit so we can put you in touch with the kids or student minister at your campus.

Classroom Buddies

To better support kids and teens with special needs in our kids and student ministries, we offer a Buddy Program. Trained serve staff are partnered with children and teens with special needs to provide individualized support through their worship experience. If your child or teen is in need of a buddy, email specialneeds@coe22.com.

Parent Resource Event

We have partnered with Nathaniel’s Hope Buddy Break to provide a FREE RESPITE program for families with special needs 17 years of age & younger. Siblings 17 & under are welcome to participate with us too! Parents/Guardians, come drop your kids off for gospel-centered, therapeutic lessons and activities and go enjoy some much needed time alone.

On-campus Buddy Breaks will resume when Duval County returns back to school. Check back soon for registration. Until then, join the Nathaniel’s Hope Buddy Break family for virtual events here. If you are interested in serving in Buddy Break, email buddybreak@coe22.com.
