When Chadwick Noel preached in-person on Easter Sunday for the first time since COVID-19, he gave thanks for God’s promise of rebirth and renewal —using sign language and wearing a face shield for lip-readers.
As the pastor of Danville Deaf Baptist Mission, Noel helps the hearing impaired receive the word of God.
He also knows a thing or two about miracles. Noel was born with kidney issues that led to multiple transplants. He was diagnosed as deaf at five years old and sustained a traumatic brain injury in a life-threatening car accident 10 years ago.
