Entering the world of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Teens with "fun, friendship, fellowship and faith."

Imagine being a teenager with limited ability to communicate with your peers, and very often your own family. The isolation and loneliness is depressing. Who do you go to for help?

Deaf Teen Quest staff and volunteers enter the world of Deaf and Hard of Hearing teens and build life-giving relationships with them. DTQ provides a healthy peer group environment with Christian role models. Through Club meetings, individual mentoring and lots of fun activities, we help Deaf teens learn about Jesus, and develop a mature faith that makes a positive difference in the world.

Jamie Jiang

"In 2013, I graduated from college with a Sign Language Interpreting degree and a deep conviction to serve the Deaf community. Without parents who can communicate with them, my heart breaks for these isolated and lonely teens. I find deep fulfillment in the mission of DTQ, where they can experience the love of Jesus through Christian adults who care enough to learn their language and enter their world. God has called me to give my life to serve the hurting population and I'm honored to lead this mission in Columbus with Central Ohio Youth for Christ."
