Tyra Lokey-Robinson, sign-art evangelist from Hope Community Church in Franklin, will be the speaker at Campbellsville University's chapel series Wednesday, Nov. 19 at Ransdell Chapel at 10 a.m. The public is invited to attend.

Lokey-Robinson is founder of the sign-art ministries, a sign language ministry that reaches the deaf and hearing impaired, at Hope Community Church in 1992.

According to the church's Web site, www.hopecommunitychurch.net, sign-art is a collaboration of mime, interpretive movement, dance, television sign, English sign and American Sign Language arranged together in music in order to illustrate and portray the message of Jesus Christ. 

Lokey-Robinson said on her Web site, tyralokey.com, "It is the gift he gave me to reach the world for him. Sign-art is sign language with a touch of God's almighty hand. Through Christ, sign-art takes you to a whole new level of worship."

Lokey-Robinson's ministry includes more than 800 ministry teams that work throughout seven countries. Her ministry teams demonstrate sign-art at several different events including weekend workshops, conferences, vacation Bible schools, women's retreats, youth services and Sunday morning/evening services.

In addition, she has been the youth pastor at First Baptist Church at Calvert City for six years.

Lokey-Robinson graduated from Murray State University in 1997 with a mass communication degree in radio and television broadcasting.

Lokey-Robinson currently has more than 40 demonstrational DVDs that provide instructions about how to teach music and drama in sign. In addition, she has a DVD available for purchase that depicts her testimony.

She and her husband, Jerry Robinson, have one child, Lyrica Brooklyn Robinson.

Chapel is designed to provide opportunities for corporate worship and exposure through a variety of informative speakers and presentations. All chapels are open to the public free of charge.
