The role of the Deaf Ministry Department is to: (1) Help facilitate taking the Three Angel’s Messages to Deaf in Alberta and around the world. (2) Be a Resource Center for Easy English and Sign Language materials for the Deaf. (3) Provide Deaf Awareness information about the unique needs of the Deaf and how to minister to them. (4) Prepare materials for ministry to Deaf within the church and in the community. (5) Help local churches set up a Ministry to the Deaf – especially in the larger centers where there are many Deaf.
