DVC History

DVC was founded in 1983 by David Stecca and his wife Ruby.

They made their first video in sign language for the Deaf in 1983.  In 1984, the DVC library began loaning video through the mail.  Since then, DVC has produced more than 1,000 original programs, including Bible studies, sign language teaching materials, dramas, sermons, and children’s programs, and has added sign language interpreting or captioning to many more. The DVC Library has loaned over 68,000 videos to the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing and their friends, family, schools and churches.  Making use of innovative video and web technology, DVC has created the DVC Christan Television Network located at www.dvc.tv providing Christian programming in ASL 24/7 around the world.

DVC has done projects in co-operation with Dr. James Dobson’s (Focus on the Family), Joni Erickson Tada, Chick Publishing (Light of the World), Jamie Lash/Rick Howard (This Was Your Life), Moody (Institute of Science) and others.
