BOARD OF TRUSTEES
The board of trustees is a group of people chosen because they have a heart for the Deaf and , most importantly, share the vision of Deaf Dimensions. Each one on this board sought the lord for His will for joining the Deaf Dimensions team. They are people that seek His face and desire to be Christlike; people that desire His heart beat for this ministry. Each board member is in agreement with the vision of this ministry and the statements of faith.

Connie accepted the Lord in 1977 after being introduced to Him by her neighbor, Mary Earl. Connie and Mary attended church together for many years until both moved to different communities. It’s because of Connie’s relationship with Mary that she developed a heart for the deaf. Connie met a number of students from the RI School for the Deaf while Mary was a teacher there. These students participated in church, church activities and Spirit-filled conferences and workshops along with Connie and Mary. Connie has had the opportunity to teach deaf youth and adults at workshops and various training events. Connie continues to be a prayer partner with Mary and remains invested in the work Mary is doing both regionally and internationally.
