Church planting teams spend time in a community supporting local leaders as they make disciples, help their church live on mission and develop new leaders.
Church Planting teams support the work of the local pastor and leaders through children’s and student ministries (VBS, Crafts, Lessons, Games & Activities), discipleship groups, minor construction projects (painting houses, pouring concrete), kids’ clubs, field days, and worship events.
These initiatives and other projects provide creative avenues for local leaders to clearly communicate The Gospel in their specific context, build relationships between teams and local leaders, and support the work of the local church in their community.
Community development teams usually spend their time doing a variety of different projects during their time here.
Community development teams typically do two days of community construction projects (painting houses, pouring floors, tying rebar, etc.) and two days of children’s ministry (leading songs, lessons, and crafts). Additionally, many teams lead field days, where they bring games, chalk, or bubbles and spend intentional time with kids in a community.
Teams taking a Community Development trip typically visit two or more communities and participate in a mix of activities.
Medical teams help provide physical and spiritual care to some of the most underserved communities in the Dominican Republic.
Medical teams spend three days helping lead mobile medical clinics alongside our local medical staff. We intentionally serve in GO Church Planting communities, so that it can be an effective outreach tool for local pastors. Mobile clinics consist of four stations: Triage, provider assessment, pharmacy, and prayer. Team members work in all four areas.
Other days are spent exploring other Focused Areas of Ministry, doing service projects and children’s ministry, and serving alongside our Dominican and Haitian local leaders.
Sports teams do not need to be made up of athletes or coaches. Anyone is welcome to join a sports ministry trip.
Sports teams spend the week with local leaders at the Leadership Development Complex or in communities around Santiago. Teams can concentrate their time in a specific area of GO Sports, including baseball, basketball, soccer or volleyball, or in English classes or coach/staff development.
They can also spend the week learning about the broad scope of GO Sports or serving the community of Tamboril, where the LDC is located. Some teams choose to lead outreach events such as basketball or soccer camps. Sports trips are completely customizable.
Catch the vision with an exploratory trip.
Exploratory trips are three-day or four-day visits for individuals, churches, or organizational leaders. These trips allow you to meet local leaders and explore the many areas of ministry within GO. You’ll get a front row seat to see how God is redeeming people, renewing communities and restoring creation across the island.
