We are excited to announce that this year we will be partnering with NEXT Worldwide on this trip. NEXT is a missions organization here in the metroplex that is focused on church planting and leadership development. They are working with church planters on 5 continents to establish churches in areas where there is little to no Gospel presence. NEXT will be working with Mashach Ministries (Alex and Aty), the same ministry our church has been working with for the last seven years, to develop leaders and multiply disciples and churches within the Dominican Republic. We are excited about the experience they had and look forward to seeing how this partnership will bless Mashach Ministries.
We are also looking forward to our students experiencing the leadership training NEXT provides on the field. This training provides students with the tools they need to be skilled missional leaders in their own circles of influence as they return home from the trip. This year you will apply directly with NEXT and all payments or funds raised will be processed through their organization.
If you would like to apply, fill out the application:
The deadline to apply is Sunday, November 13. Once you complete the application, you will be able to pay your deposit online or you can send a check to PO Box 271130, Flower Mound, TX 75027.
Completing the application process will also set up your personal fundraising page where people can make donations toward your trip costs.
Below are some dates and details you will want to make note of:
- DOMINICAN REPUBLIC Trip Dates: March 4-10, 2017
- Trip Code: DR17A (Use this code with any correspondence or funds sent to NEXT)
- Total Trip Cost: $2200***
- Initial Deposit: $200 – Due by Sunday, November 13, 2016
- Travel Cost Due: $1200 – Due by Sunday, January 8, 2017
- Final Cost Due: $2200 – Due by Sunday, February 5, 2017 ***The cost is based on 25 participants.
The actual trip cost may vary slightly due to total number of trip participants. The price has increased from last year due to the extra amount of training and equipping we will be providing for Alex’s churches and our students.
Here is what the extra cost will be covering:
- Pastoral Equipping Conferences for Alex’s Churches and other local churches in the DR
- Cultural Training for our Students
- Catalyst Leadership Training for our Students, Translators, and DR Ministers.
Last year we saw over 1000 people come to Christ, but Alex’s Churches were not equipped to follow up and disciple those people. Therefore, we are investing in Alex and his ministry so that they can reach more for Christ and effectively disciple the men and women of the DR. We have seen God do some amazing things on this trip in past years. I hope you will choose to join us this year to see how He continues to work in the Dominican Republic.
