Mission & Purpose: The purpose of the Hands in Jesus Ministry is to assist the Deaf & Hard of Hearing in understanding and enjoying God's message & to be an outreach to Deaf people in the community.
The HIJ Ministry provides interpretation of services for the Deaf & Hard of Hearing. This ministry makes it possible for the barrier between the hearing world and the Deaf to be bridged.
Did You Know?:
- American Sign Language (ASL) is the preferred language of the Deaf community
- ASL is the fourth most used language in the United States

- The best way to learn ASL is from a class taught by a Deaf person!
