Braille Ministry

Braille Workers from Redeemer Lutheran Church in Claremore at the Our Savior Lutheran Church Work Center in Tulsa

 

Lutheran Braille Workers, founded in 1943, is the largest Christian ministry in the world that provides Braille and specialized Large Print Bibles free of charge for people who are Blind or Visually Impaired. In addition to offering Christian materials in over 30 languages, their continuous goal is to add more languages. By engaging some 3,000 volunteers in over 170 Ministry Production Centers throughout the United States, LBW produces approximately 150,000 volumes a year of Braille and specialized Large Print Bibles and Christian literature. In addition, Lutheran Braille Workers has over 40 Ministry Outreach Centers throughout the United States that minister to people who are Blind and Visually Impaired through the provision of resources they can use. Most importantly, Outreach Centers provide a family of love and care. Many people who would not otherwise hear about Jesus connect to God’s Word and His people at Outreach Centers.

There are two Work Centers in the Oklahoma District, one at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Tulsa and one at Holy Trinity lutheran Church in Edmond. Volunteers from multiple area congregations meet regularly at these Work Centers and contribute their time to production of the materials.
