Peace Deaf Church

Jeff and Lynn Eccles began attending Peace Church when an Alpha course was being offered.  A member of the church that was also in the class was fluent in ASL and helped with the language barrier.  Years later, Jeff and Lynn each attended a retreat called "Deaf Encountering Christ," where they heard powerful testimonies and felt the love of God.

After the retreat, Jeff and Lynn began teaching bible studies for the deaf at Peace Church.  The classes grew in size until it was clear that the deaf needed their own church.   Jeff and Lynn had a friend that was a pastor and together they formed Peace Deaf Church. After the initial Peace Deaf Church's Pastor resigned, the congregation asked that Jeff lead the church.  Jeff accepted, became a pastor and is now the Lead Pastor of Peace Deaf Church!

"To study and to teach God's word in both formal and informal ways will always be a great priveledge and joy for the deaf ministry." - Jeff Eccles, Peace Deaf Church Pastor
