Dominican Republic Mission Trip

Work closely with the local Dominican Republic community by going on prayer walks, worshiping with the local church, and putting on the Women’s conference and VBS each day.

Date

March 10-18, 2017

Location

Barahona, Dominican Republic

The Experience

The DR 2017 team will be partnering with Pastor Rafael Torres in Barahona, DR through Praying Pelican Missions. We will be hosting a women’s conference in conjunction with a Vacation Bible School. We will be working closely with the congregation as well as the local community by going on prayer walks, worshiping with the local church, and putting on the Women’s conference and VBS each day. On this team, you can expect to experience the local culture, have your faith challenged and grown, and build lasting relationships with the Dominican women and children! We are excited to see how the Lord will work!

Our Ministry Partner

Praying Pelican Missions is a leader in short-term missions to the Dominican Republic.

Trip Cost

The team consists of 20 students who have a goal of fundraising $38,000 ($1,900 per person). Fundraisers will be a major part of this year for this team which will greatly reduce the $1,900 cost per person.

Who Should Participate

This trip is for students who want to get involved in short term missional work. Students should enjoy working with and have the desire to invest in the children and women of other countries. Spanish speakers would be ideal, but not required! Students should be prepared to be flexible and have strong communication skills. Be prepared to have a life changing experience and to see how God works in the community and in your life!

Next Steps

Applications are open online from October 1 to November 1.  Interviews are conducted in October and November of every year for the following spring.
