Our Association partners with Deaf Opportunity OutReach ministry (DoorInternational.org) which plant Deaf churches worldwide and has developed a sign language website (www.deafbibles.com) in which the hearing impaired can learn the Bible in their country's sign language, understand the gospel and grow as followers of Christ. DOOR has a cooperative relationship with the SBC's International Mission Board and they work together in sharing Christ with the Deaf - one of the most unreached people groups in the world.

Donnie Wiltshire of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina has known 'Mike & the ministry of DOOR stating that Mike has developed DOOR into one of the premier mission organizations in the world for reaching Deaf people with the gospel.'
