Connecting the Church in Mission

Dominican Republic

The Evangelical Dominican Church started in 1922 and is, in fact, the last united Church in Latin America and the Caribbean in which the Methodist Church participates. This Methodist Church currently has approximately 10,000 members. Several Global Ministries missionaries work in country - among the Haitian settlements in Barahona and one leading the Theological Seminary.  Persons in Mission pastorates are supported. Currently, the priorities of Global Ministries include institutional development and community ministries.

Florida Annual Conference churches are involved in Dominican Republic. Global Ministries works with several ecumenical partners including ALFALIT Dominicana.
