– What the stories are saying about the deaf?

A number of hearing churches across the nation have a deaf ministry. Either it is a stand-alone ministry, run by the deaf, or part of a hearing ministry, with interpreters serving as a link between the deaf and the hearing. A typical Deaf Ministry in a Hearing Church was featured in a newspaper article. Written up was the Parkade Baptist Church, and its deaf ministry. The deaf group sign-sing the gospels every Sunday morning.
