About Us

To reach Deaf people for Jesus Christ by serving as a cooperative network for Southern Baptist churches and agencies to fulfill the Great Commission by providing training, advocacy, worship, fellowship, missions awareness, and mission involvement.

What is Our Goal?

Southern Baptist Conference of the Deaf (SBCD) is a non-profit organization formed for the following purposes:

  • To provide a vehicle for obeying the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) with respect to deaf people by personal witnessing, evangelism, home missions, foreign missions, and discipleship.
  • To provide opportunities for training in local church settings, in state conferences, and on the, national level to help equip people in all aspects of the deaf ministry.
  • To assist deaf persons with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) and deaf persons, interpreting the needs and functions of the one to the other.
  • To provide a channel of communication within the Southern Baptist deaf community.
  • To provide an understanding of deafness and of the needs of deaf people to the community at large.
  • To provide opportunities for inspirational worship experiences.
  • To provide opportunities for Christian fellowship.
