Strengthening Deaf Ministries Worldwide!

United Deaf Ministries is a Christ focus ministry with a Global prospective. Deaf ministries worldwide seek to improve access as well as enhance opportunities for the Deaf community. United Deaf Ministries can do that and more. 

This year we will celebrate the work of those who have dedicated their service to Deaf ministry.  The unsung heroes who lead, interpret, coordinate, and enhance the Deaf ministry in their church and the community. 

We are exceptionally excited about this years banquet by honoring the life and work of our beloved Shirley Childress Saxon. Dr. Saxon represented the best in field of interpreting, especially in the performing arts genre.  Shirley was the principal interpreter for the soulful group Sweet Honey in the Rock. During her time with us, Shirley was our teacher, mentor, and role model.  Over the years many interpreters look up to Shirley for instruction and guidance. It is this legacy of service that we have decided to bestow upon Shirley Childress Saxon the United Deaf Ministries Lifetime Achievement Award (Posthumously). In addition, the UDM Lifetime Achievement Award will be known as the Shirley Childress Saxon Lifetime Achievement Award.
