Texas Baptist Conference For The Deaf To Be Held At Baylor

June 6, 2000

The Texas Baptist Conference for the Deaf will hold its annual state convention at Baylor University June 9-11.

Between 300 and 350 people are scheduled to attend this year's convention. The conference will focus on bringing the hearing impaired congregations and churches together for fellowship with one another. Also, programs will be available for family members and teenagers, and a nursery for infants through two-year-old children will be provided.

Several activities will take place throughout the three-day conference. There will be worship services and skill building workshops for the hearing impaired as well as interpreters. During the workshops, the hearing impaired will learn how to enhance their ministry. The interpreters will have a series of workshops to enhance sign language skills.

This year marks 51 years of existence for the Texas Baptist Conference for the Deaf. It has held its conventions at Baylor for more than 15 years.
