Through various short and long-term programs, we have dedicated our lives to helping people from all walks of life discover the world, who Jesus is, and what Jesus has called them to: to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28) and be his witness to the ends of the earth (Acts 1).

The Dominican Republic shares an island with Haiti and has become a refuge for thousands of displaced people. Although known for its vast sugar plantations, the nation’s economy depends on tourism. Political corruption is a lasting issue, along with the expanding gap between wealthy and poor. A favorite pastime the Dominican Republic is baseball, and the kids will play it all day long! They fully embrace the “island life” and the people are extremely friendly and laid back—quick to welcome and enter into a conversation.
The people of the DR love deeply—and are searching for love themselves.
Kids Ministry: VBS for local children as well as sports ministry

Teams will stay in local apartments. There will be no furniture, so you should plan to bring sleeping pads. There will be running water and electricity, but these will sometimes not work for hours at a time since it is a developing city. Showers will be available but sometimes water isn't!
God is calling you to journey with Him, to share His love with the nations and establish His Kingdom on earth. Will you join Him in the Dominican Republic?
Pray for the Dominican Republic
