Welcome to Harvest Deaf Ministries!
Harvest Deaf 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.
