Jehovah’s Witnesses - Recruiting The Deaf

A former Jehovah's Witnesses, Barbara Anderson wrote the article on Jehovah's Witnesses' practice to targeting Deaf households and recruiting them because they're isolated and vulunerable.


The worldwide recruiting attempt of Jehovah’s Witnesses to bring their religious message to the Deaf using sign language can be viewed as something of a mixed bag. While they strive to communicate it using the right methods, they convey an illusionary message that is detrimental in countless ways. The information in this article was compiled from sources who ask that their names remain confidential.

Jehovah’s Witnesses international “Deaf ministry” as directed by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society, Inc., is no small feat because there are over 200 distinct sign languages in the world. It’s their “Deaf ministry” in the United States and the United Kingdom that this article focuses on. Both countries share the English language, but each country’s sign language is markedly different although the recruiting method is basically the same. Here's an explanation:


Just as Watch Tower translators around the world look to the English version of book, article, or scripture in their work, the sign language that most of the Society’s sign language teams around the world look to for guidance is American Sign Language (ASL).

Investigation has revealed that this religious organization has not spared any expense to get their message out to the Deaf, although, overall, hearing members directly bear most of the costs. The Watch Tower Corporation provides low cost DVDs filmed at their headquarters that feature expert volunteer sign language translators signing the Bible and Watch Tower literature. But expensive electronic systems are installed in places where Witnesses congregate to help the Deaf understand the beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses with equipment costs paid for by local Witnesses. Moreover, scouring the cities and countryside looking for Deaf persons and conducting personal Bible studies is done by Witness translators at their own expense.

The charitable attitude of the Witnesses to aid the Deaf to learn the fundamentals about God is commendable at a time when it is estimated “…that only 1 percent of American Deaf children will attend church as adults and less than 7 percent will ever have the gospel presented to them in a way they can understand.” Christianity Today, January 5, 2011, Do You Hear What I Hear? by Jeremy Weber.

But what are the ramifications of accepting the sign language religious message delivered by Jehovah’s Witnesses? That is the other part of the “mixed bag” that will be discussed later.

Media Coverage: Churches in America have, until recently, been ill-equipped to share their faith with the Deaf, yet Jehovah’s Witnesses have been making a diligent effort to share theirs for years. Notice some success stories:

In Accra, Ghana, on Dec. 7, 2009, the Witnesses provided interpreters for 470 Deaf attendees at a convention where nearly 50,000 people came from Ghana, Europe and other African countries. Peace FM Online: Print News, Peacefmonline.com News, Dec. 7, 2009, 470 Deaf delegates attend Jehovah’s Witnesses Convention.

On September 30, 2000, Watchtower’s information site announced the completion of a building in Brooklyn, NY, “the first of its kind in the United States, a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses built from the ground up with the needs of the Deaf community in mind.” All services were provided in American Sign Language. Sermons were given by ministers fluent in American Sign Language, many of whom were Deaf themselves. Under construction was another sign language Kingdom Hall in Washington, D.C. that would join 68 other American Sign Language congregations and Bible study groups in the United States. Jehovah’s Witnesses Official Media Website, September 30, 2000, In New York, worship becomes more accessible to the Deaf.


On July 9, 2010, the newspaper, The Press-Enterprise, in Norco, California, reported that hundreds of Deaf Jehovah’s Witnesses were in the area to attend a convention where about 1,500 people were expected. The article stated that there were 145 American Sign Language congregations in the United States. In addition, the press article pointed out that due to the “growing turnout in Norco,” the Witnesses would have a similar conference in the Bay Area.

Then came conventions on both coasts, with others following in Michigan and Texas. The denomination has so many Deaf congregations that a new convention is being planned in Chicago.” Furthermore, “The denomination is the first to begin translating the Bible into more than 42 sign language and the denomination has translated the books of the Bible from Matthew to Jude. The translations are on DVDs and available to download…” Denton Record Chronicle, August 8, 1010, Convention draws more than 1,000 Deaf church members to Denton area, by Lucinda Breeding...

Barbara Anderson Uncensored: Eyewitness To Deceit Book.

Barbara Anderson was a member of Jehovah’s Witnesses from 1954 through 1997. She worked at Watchtower’s headquarters in Brooklyn, NY, from 1982 to 1992 where during her last four years there, she researched the movement’s official history (published in 1993) and did research as well as wrote a number of articles for their Awake! magazine. While working in the organization’s Writing Department, Barbara discovered that the Watchtower organization covered up child sexual molestation committed by Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Rather than becoming discouraged over this discovery, she became a champion for change. This issue caused her to exit the religion and eventually become an outspoken critic of Jehovah’s Witnesses’ sexual abuse policies that she’s extensively researched. Barbara Anderson's Watchtower Documents.

The Jehovah's Witnesses familiar within the Law of Moses and the Islamic holy book, the Quran/Koran, as well as various thereon. It is so sadistic quotes Jehovah's Witnesses bible - they really are fearful for the future of humanity when Jehovah's Witnesses allow such old Barbaric practices to continue. Beware the cult-like control and abuse of Jehovah's Witnesses.
