Equipping the Next Generation of
The Deaf Theological Center provides tools contextualized for the Deaf that are essential for equipping students for service according to Ephesians 4:12.
PRAYER | Luke 11:1-4 & Matthew 6:9-13
Jesus teaches His disciples how to pray.
THE WORD OF GOD | 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Scripture is inspired by God and He uses it to teach, rebuke, correct, and train us in righteousness so that we are complete and equipped for every good work.
INTENTIONAL TRAINING | Luke 6:40 & 2 Timothy 2:2
Jesus says, “A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.” Paul told Timothy to use tool of intentional training in ministry.
CONNECTION WITH OTHER MEMBERS OF THE BODY OF CHRIST | 1 Corinthians 1:10
One of Paul’s motivation for writing the letter to the church in Corinth was to bring them to unity.
The Deaf Theological Center leadership have put together an environment that leads to TRANSFORMATION through theological depth, local church focus, and life-changing relationships with other students and faculty. This school was started with the concept that all teaching materials would not be “adapted” for classroom teaching. Instead, all of our teaching materials are “CONTEXTUALIZED” for the DEAF so they can be trained as effective church planters, missionaries, pastors, and leaders. Our teachers are people who are leaders in the field where they serve. They have been trained in their field, and from this experience they are able to contextualize teaching.
