Makarios Mission Trip Spring 2023

We will be going to The Dominican Republic on a mission trip to work alongside those at Makarios International, an organization that seeks to bring about generational change in their community by strengthening the family and local church through education, discipleship, and the love of Jesus Christ.

For a brief video to see more about Makarios International (including sponsorship opportunities) click here.

Every mission team is unique at Makarios. How our team will serve will be determined by matching the abilities we have with the needs of Makarios' students, families, and leadership. Once they know who will be on our team, they will customize our week based on how each of us can most effectively serve.
