Bethel Deaf Church

Explore the ministry opportunities for the Deaf Community

Deaf Church

The Deaf Church preaches God’s Word via ASL (American Sign Language), the native language of the Deaf. This includes using visual PowerPoint presentations and The Holy Bible in ASL (DVD’s). Unlike hearing churches, the Deaf Church allows the members to participate with questions and comments, to enhance their understanding of God’s Word. The Deaf Church is voice interpreted for those in the audience who do not read ASL well.

Meet our Lay Pastor

Jerry Pearson became our bi-voacational deaf pastor in 2015. He is married to Diann and together they minister to our deaf community in ASL each week. God is using them both to reach an unreached people group right here in Dothan, AL. God is doing an amazing work through this ministry of Bethel.

Our deaf community is considered a un-engaged people group. This deaf church is sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ every week!
