Deaf Missions Founder, Duane King, passed away on January 25th, 2022. He served as the director from 1970 until 2007 when he transitioned from Executive Director to Director Emeritus where he served to help Deaf Missions the rest of his life. Duane’s excitement for sharing the Gospel with Deaf people lead to the completion of the American Sign Language Version of the Bible in 2020. His legacy will live on in the lives of people who “saw” Jesus because of his faithfulness and vision.

"My job is to take care of the possible; I trust God for the impossible." - Duane King
