General information

In 1992, the General Conference of the United Methodist Church established the National Committee on Deaf Ministries as a mission initiative (renewed at the 1996 and 2000 General Conferences.) As its mission expanded to include all people with hearing loss, the committee broadened its name to reflect the diversity of the population it represents. It is now known as the United Methodist Committee on Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ministries or DHM. Ten members make up the Committee as follows: two people who are Deaf, two late-deafened, two hard of hearing, one deaf-blind person, as well as one deaf institutional ministry professional, and two clergy with experience in ministry with people who are Deaf, late-deafened, hard of hearing, and deaf-blind. The Committee strives to be inclusive with regard to gender, ethnicity, jurisdiction, and different sign language and hearing abilities.

Our Story

At the 2000 General Conference of the United Methodist Church, delegates from across our denomination accepted a recommendation from the General Board of Global Ministries’ Health and Welfare Unit to create a national steering committee to promote ministries with and for those who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Late Deafened and Deaf-Blind. Now called the United Methodist Committee on Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ministries, we seek to continue our mission to make [Deaf] disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
