Envisioning a world where the Deaf community participates equally and fully in the Body of Christ.
The Lutheran Friends of the Deaf provides resources, instruction and support services to the global Deaf community for access to the Word of God, so that they will receive forgiveness, life and salvation in Jesus Christ.
The Church Interpreter Training Institute (CITI) instructs American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters, church members and professional church workers in church interpreting and Deaf ministry. Our goal is to train our students to better serve Deaf people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to equip them for continued growth in faith and leadership in the Christian Church.
Sign Language Camp is a terrific way for kids, ages 8 to 16, to learn American Sign Language (ASL) and have fun doing it! Our program is dedicated to teaching sign language to children with or without previous experience.
