This July, our high school group will be traveling to the Dominican Republic to minister in the city of Santiago. We will be partnering with Brandon and Bethany Nutter, international workers with the Envision branch of the Christian & Missionary Alliance. Brandon and Bethany have been serving with Envision since the spring of 2014, first as assistant coordinators, then quickly moving into the site coordinator role in early 2015. They both experienced a call to the mission field in high school and both were deeply impacted by their time serving as interns in Peru and France respectively during college. The Nutter’s hope is to connect our team with the people of Santiago so we may both learn from each other.
In Santiago, there are huge opportunities for our group to build relationships with those who are far from God, as we partner with the Nutter family and the local church to bring the gospel message to the people of Santiago. Our main goals for this trip are to work alongside the local church to encourage them and help make disciples of Jesus for kingdom impact through everything we say and do. After we return home, these partners will continue to plant, water, and reap a harvest in the lives of those we have touched.
Our group will reach out to the city of Santiago through prayer, athletics, VBS, working with youth, a cafe, and construction projects. If students are willing to step out of their comfort zone and follow the Spirit’s leading, they will have a chance to build meaningful relationships with many different types of people and participate in kingdom impact!
