BackDeaf Theological Center

For years, the vision at Brentwood Baptist Church has been to become a global equipping hub for Deaf missionaries, church planters, pastors, and other men and women who wish to receive Deaf-centric theological training for missions and ministry.

On April 14, 2014, Brentwood Baptist Church and Brentwood Baptist Deaf Church launched a partnership with Union University, International Mission Board (IMB), and Southern Baptist Conference of the Deaf to host this center.

Five Courses
All classes will be taught in American Sign Language by fluent ASL signers:

  • Old Testament
  • New Testament
  • Biblical Doctrine
  • Biblical Hermeneutics
  • Missions/Church Planting


  • Union University provides a customized academic program, academic oversight, and credit hours at a special rate.
  • IMB provides instructors, customized course delivery, and financial support for missionaries and their families while enrolled.
  • Brentwood Baptist Church and Brentwood Baptist Deaf Church provide meeting space, instructors, housing, and other services.
