The Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is a nation of many contrasts. The Caribbean island is renowned for its natural beauty, stunning beaches, and luxurious resorts.


But away from the tourist attractions, life is tough for the 11 million Dominicans–many of whom live in extreme poverty. The economic growth of recent years has unfortunately not significantly changed the lives of ordinary people.

Despite the challenges facing Dominicans, there is a hope that will not only change the attitude of their country, but also that of their Caribbean neighbours–the hope of the gospel. God is at work in this nation. Join us as we walk alongside local church partners to train, encourage, and mobilize a generation of believers.
