Bishop Dietsche announced today the appointment of the Rev. Deacon Gene Bourquin as Pastoral Missioner to the Deaf, “to serve as a pastoral caregiver to people who are deaf, deaf-blind, hard of hearing, blind, or experiencing other sensory loss (hereafter, Deaf), and as a missioner for strengthening the Diocese’s evangelism and ministry to the Deaf, including helping congregations to improve their outreach, welcome, and incorporation of people with sensory challenges.

“Gene comes to this ministry with an exceptional depth of experience,” the bishop wrote. “For nearly three decades, he worked at a national rehabilitation center for deaf-blind youths and adults as a sign language interpreter, travel instructor, researcher, and director of community services. Fluent in American Sign Language, he holds numerous certifications, a master’s degree in deafness rehabilitation, and a doctorate in health administration.”
