About this Unit:

After forming the first Sunday School class for the Deaf in Salt Lake City 19th Ward in 1892, Deaf Latter-day Saints moved to the old Ogden Fourth Ward for services when the at the School for the Deaf moved to Ogden in 1896. The Ogden Branch for the Deaf was the first dedicated Deaf unit in the Church, organized in 1917 and presided over by President Max Woodbury for fifty-one years, the longest serving branch president in the history of the Church.

The Branch served hundreds of faculty and students who worked and resided at the Utah School for the Deaf in a classic arts and crafts style chapel designed by Leslie Hodgson in 1916. After eighty-plus years in this building, the first to be specifically designed for Deaf members, the ODB moved to a new stake and building in January 1999.

The Ogden Valley Deaf Branch was the host of the 2011 LDS Deaf Symposium, held at Weber State University.

About this Unit:

Deaf Latter-day Saints have met together in Utah County since the late 1960s; the first Provo Deaf Branch met in the old seminary building on 100 South and 300 West and was formally organized in 1967 with Joe Brandenburg, Jr. as its first branch president. In 1978, the Provo 45th Deaf Branch was announced and moved to the newly created Provo South Stake. On 4 August 1996, Provo South Stake President Julian Raulston announced the conversion of the branch to the Utah Valley Deaf Ward, and Lee Shepherd was called as its first bishop. The UVW moved from its old building on 1200 South to 900 South and 500 West in 2002. On 5 June 2011, the Provo South Stake realigned its ward boundaries and meeting schedules and the Utah Valley Ward moved to its current location, three blocks east of its old meetingplace. The UVW serves Deaf members in the southern half of Utah County and northern half of Sanpete County, from Pleasant Grove to Nephi.


The Utah Valley Deaf Ward was the host site of the 2004 and co-host (with Lehi 44th Branch) of the 2016 LDS Deaf Symposium.
