YWAM Dominican Republic
San Pedro de Macoris, located one hour’s drive east of Santo Domingo, was founded in the late 19th century by Cubans who were fleeing their country’s War of Independence. They brought their extensive sugar cane farming knowledge and contributed to making the sugar industry the most important economic activity in this area. The city reached its peak during the first quarter of this century when sugar production enjoyed high prices on the international market as a result of the First World War. A drop in sugar prices and destruction from Hurricane Georges in 1998 has seen the city fall into decline. Today, San Pedro de Macorís, and the nearby tourist city of La Romana are home to approximately 400,000 inhabitants.
Join with us in helping to pioneer a new YWAM location. Groups will have opportunities to work alongside the local Churches in San Pedro and La Romana. Our focus will be providing shelter (Homes of Hope), counseling, community lead projects and encouraging Church growth. The ministry is new, the vision is now and the location is the Dominican Republic!!!
