Holy Hands Ministry

Sign Language Ministry To The Deaf

Our vision:  To reach the deaf with the gospel by interpreting to the deaf and by teaching the hearing.

As we achieve this vision, this ministry will expand in the following ways:

Enabling the deaf to find friends, grow in their Christian walk, and use their gifts and talents to serve others in the church. 

Helping JBC members learn sign language and become comfortable communicating with the deaf.

As a new ministry, we are searching for individuals who will participate in a sign language class and use this tool to expand all ministries of JBC to the deaf community.  Our goal is to move beyond interpreting the Sunday sermon - we aim to foster spiritual growth by also interpreting for Grow Groups and special activities, thereby enabling the deaf to experience full spiritual growth and community.

If you are interested in participation in the Holy Hands Ministry and already know some sign language, you can meet with us on Wednesdays. For additional information, please contact
