new ground - 

a christmas gift for the

dominican republic

Good news!

We’ve seen so many churches planted in the central region of the Dominican Republic that it’s time to move further west. Our missions partner, Miguel Shaul, and his team have developed a very effective ministry strategy and we are excited to join them in launching a new ministry base closer to the Haitian border to reach 100 unchurched communities.

This Christmas, we want to help with the down payment for the land where the new base will be built.

With your gift of $250, you will get an ornament you can you hang on your tree and use to pray for this new project.

With your gift of $250, take home an ornament and pray for this new project as you hang it on your tree. These fair trade ornaments are made by under-resourced people from around the world and will come with a prayer card related to our new project in the Dominican Republic. Ornaments can be picked up on Sundays at Millard or Elkhorn campuses. Or you can order one by clicking here. Ornaments reserved online will be mailed to you or someone as a gift.

Down payment on land

Our missions partner, Miguel Shaul, and his team have developed a strategy to build a new ministry base closer to the Haitian border. In the coming years, the base will be used for training pastors, hosting missions teams and launching new economic development projects. The Elias Piña province is highly unchurched, and while the team has already established some relationships there, there is a lot of work to do in bringing the Gospel to this part of the DR.
