Effectively communicating the Gospel of Jesus Christ with deaf people.
Bible visuals are an important tool for teaching anyone about Christ, but they are essential for deaf people, who must be reached through their eyes.
One important area of ministry at Deaf Missions is training deaf and hearing Christians to minister with deaf people.
Helping deaf people SEE the Gospel of Jesus Christ and accept Him as their Savior is the ultimate goal of Deaf Missions. That's why personal work with deaf people has always been an important aspect of the ministry.
"There hasn’t been a Bible for the deaf in over 2000 years. The first 32 chronological stories of the Bible had been put in book form using art that was drawn by and for the deaf. It also had drawn sign language so the reader could put the two together. These stories were also put onto DVD. The DVDs were broken up into 3 parts. First, there was an introduction which helped set the scene for the story. Then the Bible story itself was signed and accompanied by drawings and pictures. Finally, there was the ‘what was learned section."
