Deaf Ministry


     The Deaf Ministry has been in existence at TLBC for over 21 years. TLBC Deaf Ministry is committed to reaching deaf individuals and provides a place of worship, fellowship and discipleship. Our ministry allows deaf and hearing people to focus on God. We preach and teach the Bible in Sign Language. Deaf people in our ministry are involved in leadership, worship, music and missions. We train people to serve Jesus in many different ways. Come join us in worship.

… He Maketh The Deaf To Hear (Mark 7:37)

     Our goal is unity through Jesus Christ, removing communication barriers, which enable deaf persons to attend church and become “worship involved”. We believe the Deaf Ministry has the responsibility to encourage worship through music, Bible study classes and accurate interpretation of services. It is our objective to visually show the love of Jesus Christ.
