BGEA Expands Ministry to Reach Deaf Community

from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s June 4th Newsletter


The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is expanding its Search for Jesus internet evangelism ministry to include an outreach to the deaf community using American Sign Language (ASL), which is used in 14 countries around the world.

Initially launched at the end of last year, the new ASL ministry began with a Facebook page called ASL by the Light, where deaf visitors can see the Gospel message explained and have their spiritual questions answered via Facebook Messenger.

One way churches and ministries can effectively reach deaf individuals is through video—and this is primarily how the BGEA’s ASL ministry will operate. The ministry is currently working with members of the local deaf community to contribute content to the ASL by the Light Facebook page.
