Project: Dominican Republic Mission

Project ID: DR0002-65026

The rapidly growing Dominican Republic Lutheran Mission (DRLM) is the hub for mission work in the Latin America & Caribbean region (LAC). 

Church plants in the country’s two largest cities are moving toward self-sufficiency as they identify leaders, reach out to immigrant communities, and sow daughter preaching stations. One church plant is adjacent to the group home for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The congregation wholeheartedly welcomes them into its midst, visibly demonstrating Christ’s love for all people. 

The five congregations across the country maintain intentional outreach programs into their respective communities. To date, two Lutheran schools have been established, as well as four fledgling preaching stations. 

Concordia the Reformer Seminary and Mercy Center (CMSCR) cements the DRLM as the hub with her regional impact. Her international student body serves the DRLM churches, group home and schools. In addition, her graduates carry sound Lutheran doctrine to countries in the LAC region and beyond. 

The Mercy Center equips leaders and laity in LCMS missions and partner churches to be the hands, feet, and voice of the Church, providing conferences both online and in-person related to the Church’s mercy arm.
