The
Location

Santo Domingo

As the first city founded in the Americas, Santo Domingo is a rich blending of European, African, and native Taino Indian cultures. Spanish is the official language of the DR, although the locals blend Spanish with Dominican elements, making it “Dominicanese.” The team will do some tangible projects in the local community that will have a long-term impact. You may also spend time in a rural mountain village teaching Bible lessons at an elementary school and assisting with projects through the village church. You will also have the incredible opportunity to spend time with members of El Circulo Church through involvement in outreach projects. Come join this team and experience God’s redeeming love and grace for His people in the Dominican Republic.

El Circulo Church
Motto:

Bringing the Gospel to Dominicans.

Focus:

Community Outreach / Children and Youth

On this trip, Engage partners with El Circulo Church in Santo Domingo. Over a decade ago a group of young people started meeting together to learn about the Gospel. A local pastor took this group under his wing to teach them and walk with them in their faith and in a short time this group grew and grew. They eventually decided to start a church, now known as El Circulo. While there are many more generations other than just a youth group attending the church now, it’s DNA continues to be upbeat and youthful.
