EDCA

The European Deaf Christian Alliance (EDCA) is an umbrella of representatives from Deaf Christian
Denominational and Non-Denominational Churches and organisations in Europe.

INTRODUCTION

These representatives are born-again, Spirit-indwel t believers who have submitted themselves to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and to the fulfilment of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18- 20; Mark 16:16-20; Acts 1: 8).

HISTORY

Deaf Christian Fellowship-Europe was formed in Holland in April 1998, comprised of five member nations: Holland, Estonia, Denmark, Sweden, and England. This organization changed its name in November 2000 to the European Deaf Christian Alliance, hereafter EDCA.

THE AIM OF EDCA

The aim is to reach deaf people of every nation (in co-operation with other evangelical groups), to lead them to the knowledge of salvation through Jesus Christ and to build them up in the Christian life in fellowship with other deaf believers.

European Deaf Pastor and Leaders Week, 2021

The leadership of EDCA discussed the upcoming Pastor and Leaders Conference, scheduled for 2021 in Belarus. Due to COVID-19 restrictions set up by the government of Belarus and other countries, the plan has changed to having the conference as a Zoom conference.

Dates: February 13 and 14, 2021

More details and the program schedule will be posted on the EDCA web page in January.

Thank you for understanding. We continue to pray for you all in this difficult time. May God bless you and protect you.

United together for Christ,

EDCA leadership
