What is PEARLS?

PEARLS was also formerly known as EDCWM (European Deaf Christian Women Ministry). It was adapted to “Pearls”. Pearls is an organization for women from all over the world. 

We are part of the European Deaf Christian Alliance where churches from all over Europe have joined to share their faith and meet regularly to exchange experiences in their service, to have fellowship, worship God together and to grow spiritually.

The XHOPE Church Olching (e.V.) is supporting PEARLS’ finance for the conference.

  • heal
  • forgive
  • relationship
  • identity

PEARLS wants to achieve four of our goals:



  • empowerment
