Dan and Carole McClelland started the ASL DTS in 2013 in Washington, DC as a way for Deaf adults and those that sign fluently to be trained, empowered, and sent as ambassadors for Christ into the world. Since then they have run many training programs and helped plant Deaf missions works in various places around the world. They are believing that through this ministry God is planting deep roots in the truth of God’s word, and igniting faith into this generation to see revival in the Deaf community worldwide.

In 2019 God moved this ministry to Jamaica where they continue to run the DTS while also serving alongside the local Deaf Jamaican community.  


To train up young adults and the young at heart, by using Sign Language, to first: Know God and to love His presence and seek him above all else. And second: To Make God Known and share their passion for Jesus throughout the Deaf Community worldwide.



Youth With A Mission is an international movement of Christians from many denominations dedicated to presenting Jesus Christ personally to this generation, to mobilize as many as possible to help in this task, and to the training and equipping of believers for their part in fulfilling the Great Commission. As Christians of God's Kingdom, we are called to love, worship, and obey our Lord, to love the Church, and to present the whole Gospel for the whole man throughout the whole world.
