The old “DOOR” was involved in many different Deaf ministries activities – church planting, training, producing videos, running camps, singing tour.  A small group would move to a city, survey the Deaf community, begin reaching out and establish a Deaf ministry. After about a year they would leave one staff person and move on to another city in the US.

As DOOR started to get more and more requests both in the US as well as overseas, they merged with United World Mission (UWM) to help them learn how to reproduce themselves, get more focused and stable financially.

To be more effective at reaching the International Deaf Population DOOR worked with Dr. Lovejoy to learn about the method he developed, Chronological Bible Storying.

By going out on the streets of Nairobi, mainly in the evenings and at night time,  a ministry to the Deaf started with just a hand-full of Deaf who became believers and wanted to learn more about the Bible.  

11 students (9 Deaf and 2 hearing) graduated from DOOR’s Deaf Leadership Training Center after completing one-full year of training to be Deaf church planters/missionaries and trainers in Chronological Bible Storying developed by/for the Deaf.

The First class of DOOR’s Deaf Leadership training program was the first of the Continent based training programs.

The Asia Was established to reach the Deaf Population with it’s home base being in the Philippines.
