The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council recognizes the Episcopal Conference of the Deaf (ECD) as the agency with particular responsibility for the Church’s ministry to deaf people.  Since 1881, the ECD has been the oldest national Christian organization seeking to bring the Gospel to Deaf people and people with significant hearing loss.

The ECD encourages the wider Church to be aware of the Deaf community and its needs and supports work in the field with limited grants and seed money for new deaf ministries.  Your advocacy and financial support are integral to our efforts.
