Deaf Ministry

At Quail Lakes Baptist Church we have a desire to win and build passionate, lifelong followers of Jesus Christ in the Deaf community. We want you to know that this is a place where you are welcomed and desired and we feel that without your presence, we are not complete. We invite you to participate in our 10:00 a.m. service that is interpreted. Draw close to our Lord and find strength and joy as we worship together.

Our church has been absolutely blessed to have a dynamic and talented team of ASL Interpreters.

Cindy Bender serves as the Director of our Deaf Ministry. She is a nationally certified interpreter by RID (Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf) and has earned a Specialist Certificate, Legal, and NAD Level V Masters Certificate.

Peter Boklund earned his Bachelor's Degree in Communications Disorders and Deaf Studies from CSU Fresno. He holds the National Educational EIPA interpreting certificate and currently works as an Independent Contractor in the community.

Chrissy Boklund earned her Bachelor's Degree in Deaf Studies from CSU Sacramento, completed the Interpreters Preparation Program at American River College, and started her new career as an ASL teacher at St. Mary’s High School in fall 2018.
