Welcome to Harvest
Ministries was established by the vision of Dr. Reginald
(Reggie) Rempel. As International Deaf Representative of
BIMI (Baptist International Missions Incorporated) for
many years, Dr. Rempel had a vision for a school that
would train the Deaf to serve in the Christian ministry.
"Training the deaf to reach the deaf for Christ". His
vision became a reality in the spring of 1994 with the
purchase of approximately 14 acres of land in the North
Georgia area and BIMI Deaf Bible Institute was begun.
During the third year, the BIMI Deaf Bible Institute was
changed to the BIMI Deaf Bible College. Since then,
there has been a complete renovation of the buildings on
the property including a dining hall, boy’s dormitory
and the old barn which houses the library, office and
the Lee Roberson Chapel. After that, the ministry
continued to grow and now includes Harvest Christian
Academy for the Deaf (1998) and Harvest Baptist Church
of the Deaf (2000). In the winter of 2001, the BIMI Deaf
Bible College, at the encouragement of both the BIMI
headquarters and supporting pastors, changed its name to
Harvest Deaf Bible College. All three are now under the
umbrella of Harvest Deaf Ministries, Inc. Future plans
include an additional dormitory building and a gym as
well as the construction of a new school building.
Please pray for the continued growth and outreach of
this great work for the glory of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
