Meet the Ministry Leadership Team-
Chief Inspirational Officer
Jon Alex Davidson is the reason Rising Above Ministries exists. The ministry was birthed by his parents, Jeff and Becky Davidson, through their own experiences raising a son with profound special needs.
Despite cerebral palsy, autism, epileptic seizures, and being non-verbal, Jon Alex is the inspiration, motivation, and biggest blessing the Davidson ever could have imagined. Through Jon Alex, God captured the Davidson's heart for their fellow special-needs families and called them to be his messengers to the special-needs community.
Our friend Jeff Davidson passed away May 23, 2017. He was the founder and President/CEO of Rising Above Ministries, a national special needs ministry serving special needs families. A pastor, speaker, and author, Jeff said he was chosen to be the dad of a son with special needs and called by God to minister to those in the special needs community. Rising Above was birthed by Jeff, and his wife Becky, based upon their own experiences raising their son with profound special needs. In addition to his own blog, GoodnightSuperman.com, Jeff also was a contributing author to the blog "Not Alone" SpecialNeedsParenting.net and he wrote at ComfortinTheMidstofChaos.com. In addition, Jeff was a team member and special-needs writer at 1Corinthians13Parenting.com. He also served on the advisory team and blogged at Disability Matters WhyDisabilityMatters.org. He wrote the book, “No More Peanut Butter Sandwiches: a father, a son with special needs, and their journey with God”.
