Deaf Theological Center opens

A Deaf Theological Center is opening near Nashville. Deaf believers will be offered "customized seminary-level training for missions and ministry." The work is the combined effort on the part of the International Mission Board, Union University, the Southern Baptist Conference for the Deaf, Brentwood Baptist Church and Brentwood Baptist Deaf Church. The Center is starting with six students who are being taught in ASL. Classes included Old Testament, New Testament, biblical doctrine, biblical hermeneutics and missions/church planting. There's more information here. Below is a video explaining the mission effort.
