Despite the positive dimensions of social transformation, the downside points to the reality that many disadvantaged groups including persons with disability may be left out if deliberate efforts are not made to include them. Religion undoubtedly has a major role to play. It is proven that persons with disability experience extreme stigmatization, exclusion, and lack of participation in most African churches. The Covid-19 pandemic among many challenges also offers some opportunities which does not require physical presence for ministry and fellowship. Hence, a lot of churches have migrated to the digital space. The research explores online opportunities that could be harnessed to enhance ministry among people with disability. It is imperative that people with disability are not neglected as their inclusion will reflect the African churches’ full participation in the all-inclusive mission of God (Misso Dei).
