The Alliance has had an active presence in the Dominican Republic since the mid 1960s when Dominicans living in New York, along with other Hispanic immigrants, sacrificially gave of their time and resources to take the Christ-centered message of the C&MA to their homeland. The church took root and grew, even with the absence of trained pastors or international workers.
In the 1980s, The Alliance sent full-time international workers to the country to work alongside Dominican believers to provide much-needed leadership and theological training and to expand the church into people groups with little evangelical presence.
Today, Alliance workers are involved in a variety of ministries, in many cases working alongside Dominican believers to build Christian communities throughout the country. Creative strategies such as Marriage Encounter, relational evangelism, and youth and family outreaches are among many different approaches being used to share Jesus’ love and expand His Kingdom among urban professionals, one of the least reached groups in the Dominican Republic. The ultimate goal is to multiply strong communities of believers throughout the country who will impact their nation and the world.
The C&MA National Church of the Dominican Republic: 37 organized churches (25 members and above), 35 unorganized churches (below 25 members), 11 preaching points (small groups), 19 ordained ministers, 14 pastors, 28 licensed workers, 4 local Dominican missionary church planters
