You have a heart for the Deaf. You desperately want them to know about Jesus’s love and sacrifice for them. But if you’re a hearing individual, there are a few obvious barriers: language and culture.

So what could you possibly do to help in Deaf ministry?

Well, according to Rob Myers with DOOR International, there is actually a lot that hearing people can do for Deaf Gospel outreach.

For one, Deaf Christian leaders need support in ministry, and hearing believers can help provide that support. Myers says, “Many of these Deaf leaders actually struggle because, for years, they’ve been told they can’t lead and they can’t do things. But they can! God has gifted every single believer with spiritual gifts to be able to serve the Kingdom.”
