The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ministries share Jesus’ love by equipping and advocating access through effective communication and leadership in the diverse, deaf community. DHM provides grants and scholarships and has a monthly newsletter.
This year’s liaison with the Disability Ministries Committee is Reverend Leo Yates. Ten members make up the Committee as follows: two people who are Deaf, two late-deafened, two hard of hearing, one DeafBlind person, as well as one deaf institutional ministry professional, and two clergy with experience in ministry with people who are Deaf, late-deafened, hard of hearing, and DeafBlind.
The Committee strives to be inclusive with regard to gender, ethnicity, jurisdiction, and different sign language and hearing abilities.
