Deaf Ministry Outreach

LWML continues to expand its focus on affirming each woman’s relationship with God.

Mission: Envisioning a world where hearing and deaf Lutheran Women in Mission participate together in ministry to the people of the world.


The purpose of LWML Deaf Ministry Outreach is to:

  • Intentionally reach out to welcome sisters in the deaf community into fellowship and service with Lutheran Women in Mission.
  • Encourage and equip hearing, hard of hearing, and deaf women to participate equally as sisters in Christ.
  • Assist and train LWML women to invite and connect with women in the deaf community to grow in relationships as sisters in Christ.

This vital outreach is just beginning.

As a first step toward inviting and connecting with our deaf sisters, here are some resource links about deaf ministry.
