Deaf Missions exists for one purpose:
To effectively communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ with deaf people.
Why a mission to deaf people? Because deafness is more than just a loss of hearing. Deaf people belong to a distinct cultural group with unique customs and ways of communicating. Deaf people have their own language--sign language. English is often a second language to deaf people, who therefore may find it difficult to read a printed Bible or Sunday school lesson.
Deaf people want, and need, the Bible and other Christian teaching aids in their first language, American Sign Language. They need ministers and teachers who understand their language and culture. This is why Deaf Missions provides materials and training that is designed especially for the hundreds of thousands of deaf people who use sign language as their only (or preferred) language.
