Deaf Ministry


A Perfect Place for Deaf to Grow!

The Deaf Ministry of the First Pentecostal Church is a multi-faceted ministry with classes for the Deaf on Sunday’s at 10:00am and select Friday’s at 7:00pm, check the ONLINE CALENDAR for events. Also, another primary purpose is to provide interpretation in American Sign Language (ASL) of all church services. The church is also equipped with wireless assisted hearing devices for the hearing impaired. ASL hearing interpreters permit the deaf to hear and participate in all phases of every service.

Marietta Patchin, the Deaf Ministry Coordinator, is also the United Pentecostal Church International Deaf Ministry Coordinator for the Eastern region of the United States. Subsequently, First Pentecostal Church acts as the host for several deaf weekends each year, including the UPCI National Conference in 2013. These conferences are religious, social and training events for a very large part of the deaf population.
