Think of the times you’ve grown in your faith. Chances are you didn’t get there alone.
You likely had a teacher or mentor, or you grew by experience. But imagine if you were cut off from those things. Sometimes, Deaf people feel that way in a Hearing church.
DOOR International’s Rob Myers describes a conversation he once had with a Deaf friend:
“I asked about their experience, and they said, ‘Yes, I get a lot of information out of a hearing church that provides an interpreter. But the biggest frustration is that I’m the object of ministry. I don’t get to be a minister. There’s no opportunity to serve and use the gifts that God’s given me in the church.’”
