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 Divinity College. 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.

When we believe in the gospel of the kingdom of God and when we turn to follow Jesus, God changes us. Jesus teaches that the two greatest commandments are to “love the Lord our God with all our hearts, minds, and strength and to love our neighbour as much as we love ourselves” (Matt 22:36-41). As a church, we’re learning how to love God and each other, learn and grow together, and get ready for His kingdom that will come!
