When Billy and Nellie started the Joy Class, Bellevue’s special needs ministry over 30 years ago, they had no plan, and no experience in the area of special needs ministry. What they did have, was a calling from God to start this ministry. They wanted to create a place that special needs children could worship the Lord and learn about His everlasting love. “We don’t babysit,” says Nellie, “We have a full-blown Bible study.”
