A key element of this Service & Learning opportunity is a three-way partnership: Resonate Global Mission is the host and in charge of logistics. The local church or organization plans and leads the activities and ministry outreach. The sending team will recruit, raise funds, send the team, and handle its internal issues. The main story here is the joining of the diverse groups into one team that lives out and testifies to the Lord’s Kingdom.
Participants will engage in community service, evangelism, music, drama, and other ways of connecting with a community depending on the gifts and skills of the participants. The team works in coordination with a local Dominican church or other ministry. Fellowship and fun is definitely on the schedule, with visits to beaches, waterfalls, and other recreational and cultural sites.
Committed to Christ. Ages 16 and above. Must be a Canada or U.S. resident. Willingness to work under the leadership of the community. Flexible individuals dedicated to serving and interacting with fellow Christians in a culture different from their own.
The cost for in-country food, travel, and lodging is between $75 and $100 USD per-person per day, depending on the kind of ministry assignment, lodging, team size, etc. and will be worked on in consultation with all parties.
We work to assure that all team members will experience being used by God in the ministry that is being planned. God can use something as simple as talking with others one on one, making friends, or playing with children, to reveal His Kingdom and to demonstrate the unity of the body of Christ. And there's a lot to learn and enjoy in the DR. The team will build relationships, learn and grow together through fellowship, worship, service, and also fun times like sports and games, swimming at a waterfall, music and drama. The joy and blessing of the experience comes from getting involved with the local ministry and experiencing the relationships, the culture, and the context of ministry and service, as well as visits to historical sites and places of natural beauty, in order to appreciate the cultural heritage.
