Deaf Ministry

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.

– 1 Corinthians 12:4-7

Our Ministry

The Metropolitan Chicago Synod supports Deaf Ministry. We seek to support and enable groups to connect and gather, and to carry out God’s work in their communities.
