Harvest Deaf Bible College began in 1994 on 14 acres of beautiful property in Ringgold, GA. Almost immediately, people from around the country began asking us if we had considered beginning a school for the deaf children as well. After much prayer, consideration, and definite leading of the Lord, Harvest Christian Academy for the Deaf began. God has blessed with growth in both numbers and in each child’s life educationally and spiritually. I praise the Lord for allowing us to be a part of this school’s wonderful beginning. I love seeing these children have opportunities to serve the Lord and learn more about Him.
I grew up attending a provincial or state school for the deaf in Canada. Although I appreciated my teachers and school very much, I wish I could have had a chance to attend a private Christian school.
When my wife and I began working in full-time ministry for the deaf, we were acquainted with many Christian schools. My wife also shared the experiences she had being able to attend Christian schools in the past. My heart broke as I began to notice that there seemed to be no school of this type for the deaf.

Dr. Reggie Rempel
As Christians, we realize that God desires to develop a people who, of their own will, take Christ not only as their Savior but also as the Lord of their lives. We also realize that the pull of the world and material gain is stronger in today’s society than many students’ desire to serve God. We have churches that are without pastors, missionaries around the world are hopelessly pleading for young people, deaf and hearing, to come to the mission field and help the missionaries in their ministries, and most Christian schools struggle annually to fill teaching and staff positions with Christians who are willing to work for Christian school wages.
While we realize that not all of our students will be called into full-time Christian work, it is our duty to challenge our deaf students concerning the work of the Lord and to give them guidance in surrendering their lives to His harvest.
We also want to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Reggie and Kim Rempel for taking a step of faith and obedience ten years ago in founding something so unique and so amazing as a Christian school for deaf children.
Please pray for us as we, according to II Timothy 2:2, commit the things of God to faithful young men and women, deaf and hearing, who will be able to teach others also. We thank God for the privilege of witnessing His power save souls and change lives for His glory at Harvest Christian Academy for the Deaf.

Harvest Christian Academy for the Deaf exists for the purpose of allowing deaf children to receive an education centered around the Word of God. Educating our children academically is very important; however, we believe helping them become “doers” of the Word of God and not “hearers” only should be our main goal.
We unashamedly affirm and believe in the plenary, verbal inspiration in the original languages of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, the creation of man by the direct act of God, the incarnation and virgin birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, His vicarious atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of His blood on the cross, the new birth through the regeneration by the Holy Spirit, and the free gift of eternal life by the grace of God.
Although Harvest Christian was created to accommodate the deaf, hearing siblings of the deaf students as well as CODAs (child of deaf adult) may apply for acceptance. After an application and an interview with the principal and administrator is completed, determination of the hearing student’s attendance will be considered. We believe that this combination will benefit both the hearing and deaf students.
