Estimated at 70 million, the Deaf are thought to be one of the largest unreached people groups worldwide, with less than 2% of Deaf people knowing Jesus as their Savior.
Though the Body of Christ is slowly becoming aware of this vast need, the response is still gaining traction. See a list of common barriers to Deaf awareness.
Less than 10% of the world’s 400+ sign languages have any published Bible translation work. Even if Scripture has been translated into a sign language, it doesn’t necessarily mean those Deaf believers have a way to fellowship and grow in Christ. Church planting and biblical leadership development are even more rare than translation efforts.
But, our God hasn’t left His Deaf children without a source of hope. Click here to see how the Lord has called and equipped DOOR to respond.
