Global Access Conference Update


Brett Fischer, Victory Lane Camp Founder, recently returned from a trip to the Global Access Conference where the theme was “Where Disabilities and Possibilities Meet.” Joni and Friends International Disability Ministry coordinated the conference and invited Fischer to share a presentation.

Brett spoke on “Finding Hope in Nopeville,” and also represented Victory Lane Camp to disability ministry leaders from 50 countries. The premise of his presentation was that a solid biblical worldview lays the foundation for making wise medical technology decisions in this culture of Nopeville. “We live in a culture that creates excessive limitations on people with disabilities,” Brett noted. “In addition, our own choices as parents limit our children’s potential when it comes to using technology.”

Fischer attended the conference with his 13-year-old son, Samuel. Featured speakers included renowned disability advocate Joni Eareckson Tada and Nick Vujicic of Life without Limbs. “I really enjoyed the community feel to the whole conference, and I enjoyed watching every session being interpreted through American Sign Language,” said Samuel.

The two built networking connections with international ministries such as Young Life-Capernaum and Joni and Friends: Family Retreats. “God cares deeply about people facing disabilities and those parents who raise children with disabilities,” Brett expressed. “There is international momentum toward disability ministry in the 21st century, and it is exciting that Victory Lane Camp is positioning itself to continue to make a huge impact on Henry County Indiana and beyond.”
