Overview

Join Maranatha in the Dominican Republic!

Maranatha has a long history of working in the DR reaching back to the early 1990’s. The churches and schools that have been completed have since blossomed and have created a need for more urgently-needed buildings as congregations out-grow the current facilities. Local church leadership have requested assistance once again, and Maranatha is gladly responding to this call.

While the job scope for this project is still to be finalized, volunteers will likely build a new church for a congregation in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Depending on the skills and interests of the volunteers who register, this project could also include community outreach including children’s ministry and health education.
