DOOR International focuses on the largest people group worldwide unreached by the Gospel who lack access to Scripture in their heart language: the Deaf. Out of over 400 sign languages, not one possesses a complete Bible, and a huge majority lack any sort of translation at all. Less than 2% of Deaf people worldwide are Christians, and most have never experienced the Gospel in a way they can understand it. Local Deaf Christian leaders, if there are any, typically lack training, resources, and opportunities to grow themselves, much less invest in others. DOOR International’s mission is to “bring God’s Word and reproducing Christian fellowships to the Deaf around the world.” Using demonstrated reproducible methods, DOOR combats Gospel poverty in Deaf communities in two main ways: • As a member of Wycliffe Global Alliance and the Forum of Bible Agencies International, DOOR helps communities translate Scripture into various sign languages; and • DOOR trains local Deaf Christians to do church planting through evangelism, discipleship, leadership development, and the establishment of local fellowships. DOOR employs approximately 180 full-time staff, over 85% of whom are Deaf and over 90% of whom are nationals. For more information, visit

God is bringing His Word and reproducing Christian fellowship to the world's 35-40,000,000 Deaf. D.O.O.R. Int'l. engages Deaf Christians, trains them in sign language Bible translation, evangelism (testimony and Scripture) and church-planting (worship skills and Christian leadership concepts), and sends them out to share through story, drama, song and dialogue resulting in Deaf Christian fellowships. DOOR partners with the Wycliffe Global Alliance, IMB, Faith Comes By Hearing and others.
The first Nigerian Sign Language Bible stories are ready to be shared. Using proven methodologies, Deaf 2 by 2 Teams (evangelist/church-planters) are living in concentrated Deaf population areas in Nigeria, meeting with Deaf, sharing Bible stories and testimony, planting churches, and training Deaf Christians to become leaders in their new local Deaf Christian Fellowships. Join with us in helping them be successful as they go out.
