‘Jesus’ a Deaf Missions Film Set to Make Summer History

Deaf Missions and Iconic Events Releasing announces the release of the first-ever ASL adaptation for the silver screen, JESUS: a Deaf Missions film. Experience the story of Jesus and his ministry on Earth presented as a feature film entirely in American Sign Language in select theaters beginning June 20, 2024—a historic first for Deaf audiences.

“I’m excited to see how the Deaf audience responds to this film,” shares director Joseph D. Josselyn. “They can finally watch a movie about Jesus without any language barriers and become fully immersed in it with their heart language!”

Deaf Missions, a ministry dedicated to communicating the Gospel of Jesus with Deaf people through their heart language, culture and identity, has partnered with GUM Vision Studio, along with numerous ministries and generous donors to bring JESUS: a Deaf Missions film to theaters.

JESUS: a Deaf Missions film aptly tagged “For Deaf by Deaf” is brought to life by Joseph D. Josselyn, a Deaf producer and director from Deaf Missions, and Michael Davis, a Deaf producer at GUM Vision Studio. The film will include English subtitles and a soundtrack.

“It was incredibly important to us to partner with Deaf actors and Deaf professionals to bring this story to life for the Deaf audience,” said executive producer and CEO of Deaf Missions Chad Entinger. “The Deaf community is one of the largest unreached people groups in the world, so we are praying that God will use this movie to ignite a movement of healing and heart change in the Deaf community.”
