Church Opens Counseling Center for Deaf

Brentwood Baptist Deaf Church is holding a grand opening this afternoon for its counseling services. Walk Ministries is opening new offices at First Baptist Nashville. The new program works with First Baptist Nashville’s counseling services and pastoral care ministry. The offices will be closer and more convenient for the deaf than the Brentwood location. The services are being lead by CODA Beryl Corey, a licensed master of social work

The Brentwood Baptist Deaf Church meets at the Inman Center. The facilities were built specifically to enhance the worship experience of the deaf. Seats have a direct sight line to the stage and are spaced further apart. Floor speakers allow deaf worshipers to feel the music. And anyone with a hearing aid can tie into the sound system.
