John & Adele
Deaf Crossfire Leaders
Husband and wife team, John Hemingway (Deaf) and Adele Routliff (hearing), co-lead Deaf Crossfire. John is a retired teacher who recently completed his course requirements for his Masters of Theological Studies (MTS) degree at the McMaster School Of Divinity. His hunger to know God began at the age of 19 and John’s desire is for us is to know God’s Word, His will, and His ways. Adele’s involvement with the Deaf community began with ‘mother, father deaf.’ She appreciates coming alongside people, engaging in honest relationships, and encouraging people to become all that they can be.
