At Shelter Cove Community Church we have a desire to reach and raise authentic followers of Jesus Christ in the Deaf community. We have created a place that offers resources to engage socially, gain spiritual enrichment, and provide a platform to bridge the gap between the hearing and the Deaf communities.

Here at Shelter Cove Community Church, we want you to know that this is a place where you are welcomed and desired and we feel that without your presence we are not complete.

Our church has been absolutely blessed to have the gifted Sara Sherbert serving as the Director of the Deaf Ministry. Sara comes to us with a list of qualifications and experiences. Sara holds a MS in Deaf Education and a Level II Deaf Education Credential and is working towards her EIPA certification before moving on to a RID certification. She has been interpreting at Shelter Cove since the end of 2009 and has become a valued member of our staff as the Deaf Ministry Director in January of 2017. Along with her knowledge and experiences, Sara comes with a heart for the Lord, a commitment to the Deaf community and a passion for relating the love of God to the Deaf.
