The Grove Deaf Ministry exists to provide spiritual strengthening resources for the Deaf. We provide spiritual meetings, events, and church services for the Deaf, as well as connect the Deaf in the Riverside area in such a way that a local community of fellowship, unity, encouragement, and mission is fostered and developed.
We also connect the hearing who wish to do ministry with the Deaf and others who desire such fellowship, while at the same time, acquainting the hearing with the uniqueness of American Sign Language and Deaf Culture.
We are here by God’s purpose and design. Our aim is to proclaim that regardless of whether we are deaf or not. The basic principle behind this ministry is that we are all created in the image of God in diversity and that we can find ultimate wholeness, restoration, fulfillment, and hope only in Him. We strongly believe that the Deaf are created no less than the hearing and have an active part in sharing the “everlasting gospel” (Revelation 14:6,7).

What to Expect?

Anyone, Deaf and hearing, is free to join and participate. A basic knowledge of American Sign Language would be helpful. If you are a first-time visitor, be assured that we will make sure you are made comfortable with introductions.
We will assist you in getting acquainted with what we’re studying at that time. You will be given study material for the topic at the time of your visit. Likewise, you have opportunity to pose questions which will be clearly answered.
