About Us

Silent Praise is a student-run organization that seeks to praise God through worship in American Sign Language (ASL). Members do not need to have any prior knowledge about, or experience with, ASL and Deaf culture.

At each of our weekly meetings, we teach a new song one sign at a time. Some of our recent songs include Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone), Here I Am to Worship, Voice of Truth, and Someone Worth Dying For. Approximately once a month, we take small groups to perform as special music at area churches. We also prepare special pieces for events including the Alternative Worship service held on campus each semester.

Along with learning to worship in American Sign Language, the club also seeks to promote cultural understanding between people with all levels of hearing ability. For more information please contact us at silentpraise@hope.edu
