GO Seminary of the Americas provides practical, sustainable, intensive biblical and theological training in ministry to local leaders. We are committed to leadership multiplication and sparking Gospel movements as we seek to redeem people, renew communities and restore creation.
On average, only 25% of the Dominican population finishes high school. As the country continues to make strong efforts to enhance its educational system, 75% of today’s adults do their best with limited education.
Many local Christian leaders are passionate about the Gospel but lack adequate ministry training due to its unavailability and their limited education. The GO Seminary of the Americas uniquely responds to these issues by providing a contextualized approach to training; meeting our students from various educational backgrounds where they are.
Through the GO Seminary, Teachers and Pastors from the Dominican Republic and the United States have partnered together to indigenize theological and ministry training resources on the island in order to establish a sustainable means of training that can replicate itself on the island of Hispaniola and beyond.
GO Seminary is currently training established pastors and emerging leaders who will go back and strengthen local churches as well as leaders that will go on to plant new missional churches. We currently offer the full-time program (nearly 1300 instruction hours), the Church Planting Intensive Track (288 instruction hours), the Apollos Project (144 instruction hours), the Apollos Project in prisons (144 instruction hours) as well as the Mary Initiative which is a women’s leadership outreach (72 instruction hours).
In the GO Seminary of the Americas, students are required to complete nearly 1300 hours of coursework over three years before completing their 4th year of practical application. Our programs are designed to reawaken the missional call of the local church and to cultivate Christian community through our cohort approach to education. We foster a solid team leadership approach to ministry that engages culture and community for the sake of furthering the Kingdom of God.
We produce teams of Gospel-centered leaders whose service and combined leadership result in the fingerprints of the local church being all over the community so much so that even if the community hated some of what they believed they would grieve if they were gone because they had loved them so well, that churches would have loved their communities so well that those communities would feel diminished by the church’s absence.
Our current space limits the number of students and local leaders that we can equip for Kingdom work. We look forward to our future home at the GO Leadership Development
Complex that will help facilitate our rapid growth and create further opportunities for leadership transformation

Go Ministries Leadership Development Complex will provide room to facilitate the GO Seminary of the America’s rapid growth and impact – creating residential space and work-study opportunities for students.
This will include instructional space, a computer lab, a library, a conference area, laboratories and residential living space for our students.
It will also allow us to expand our educational programs beyond our current theological offerings to include a school of church planting, a school of worship, and a school of pastoral counseling. The synergy built due to the proximity and collaboration between the areas of sports, vocation and Kingdom business development will help us cultivate gospel-centered leaders in every walk of life.
