Ciudad del Cielo, Dominican Republic Campaign
Maranatha is building a large pre-kindergarten through secondary school campus in a region of Santo Domingo called Ciudad del Cielo, which has no options for Christian education. This special project is dedicated to Darrell Hardy, Maranatha’s late vice president of construction. The estimated cost of this project is $2.5 million. Generous donors have allowed us to create a matching fund to double every dollar given, up to $1.25 million! So make a gift and double your impact to help us to reach this goal!
In the northern part of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, there is a neighborhood called Ciudad del Cielo. It is a fast-growing area with 80 Seventh-day Adventist congregations but not a single Adventist school. In fact, there isn’t even a Christian school in the area!
The Adventist leadership in the region believes that a school could make a significant impact in the community, not only on the existing membership but on those seeking a values-based education. They were able to purchase a large plot of land but needed help constructing the school.
After much prayer and discussion, Maranatha has committed to constructing a campus at Ciudad del Cielo, which means “City of Heaven” in Spanish. The school will have a large Education and Evangelism Center in addition to a two-story classroom complex, a large church that holds 500 people, a wall to wrap around the property, and beautiful landscaping.
Ciudad del Cielo is dedicated to Darrell Hardy, Maranatha’s late vice president of construction; this was the last project he worked on before he passed away, unexpectedly, in November 2022.
The estimated cost of this project is $2.5 million. Generous donors have allowed us to create a matching fund to double every dollar given, up to $1.25 million!
