What's Included


Join Maranatha in the Dominican Republic!

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

Volunteers on this project will help build a church for the new school campus of Ciudad del Cielo in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Depending on the skills and interests of the volunteers who register, this project could also include community outreach activities, such as children’s ministry and health education.
