Multiple Group Project 2015

March 19 - 29, 2015
Dominican Republic
Participation Fee
What's Included


Small groups will join together to construct the block walls for the Luz de Villa Carmen church near Santo Domingo and pour a floor and assemble a metal frame for the Fe de Jesus church in a nearby community. Volunteers will also complete painting projects in the community and conduct local community outreach.

The Multiple Group Project is an opportunity for small teams of 15 or less to experience a Maranatha mission project and train the leaders to head a project in the future. Participants with experience as a cook, spiritual leader, construction superintendent, team medic, children’s ministry leader, etc, are needed and will easily be integrated into overall group activities. All teams will join together for a large group experience while maintaining the intimacy of their own small group. Small groups may come from schools, churches, families, work groups, or other entities. Small Group leaders can register on this page. If you are an individual who is joining a small group or would like to join this trip without a group, please review the information brochure and contact your group leader or Maranatha for a different registration link.

Bayahibe and Isla Saona - Included

The Dominican Republic is known for its white sand beaches and beautiful Caribbean weather. As a group, we are planning to take a full day excursion to explore the Dominican Republic’s gorgeous coastline. The group will take a two-hour bus ride to Bayahibe before taking a boat out to a small island called Isla Saona off the southeast coast of the Dominican Republic. In addition to enjoying the warm water, sandy beaches under palm trees, and a vegetarian lunch, volunteers will also have the opportunity to purchase souvenirs. The excursion cost is included in your participation fee.
