Our Deaf Ministries are for people deaf or hard of hearing who want to have a personal relationship with Jesus, grow in faith together as a community and have a place to gather with family and friends. Our goal is to prepare and equip deaf and hard of hearing Christians to become strong spiritual leaders in their church, family and community so they can lead others to Jesus Christ.

Our 9:30am contemporary worship service in the Fellowship Center is interpreted each week and other services, classes and events may be interpreted upon advance request. We offer free classes in Beginner’s American Sign Language (ASL) from September through May for those who desire to communicate with the deaf and hard of hearing or are led to ministry interpreting or signing songs. On Monday evenings, join us from 6:30-7:30pm for Basic ASL and from 7:30-8:30 for Songs in Sign in Room C-204 (click here for a campus map).
