SERVING THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC COMMUNITY
We want to partner together to build the Kingdom of God. Join us and help make a difference as we share in what God is doing around the world. God's calling to serve extends beyond our community, JC3 responds to this command on a global scale.
JC3 began the relationship with Food For Hungry in 2012 with a vision trip. The first trip was in July 2015 to the community of Guayabal. We have made 5 mission trips to Guayabal. Food for Hungry (FH) believes that ending poverty requires more than just providing raw resources but seeks to end ALL forms of human poverty by addressing a person’s entire life. Their solutions address the physical, spiritual, and relational needs of vulnerable people. FH partners with local leaders to develop transformative solutions, which are both sustainable and implemented at the hands of the communities themselves. They have four phases for community development to create a foundation for resilience and self-sufficiency. We enter communities with the intention of graduating them in approximately 10-12 years. Our goal is to walk alongside communities so that they’re able to thrive once we leave.
