Envision DR is located in the capital city of Santo Domingo, home to over 3 million people. Santo Domingo is the oldest Western city in the Americas. A city founded by Christopher Columbus’ son, Bartholomew, in 1496, it became a city of firsts: the first university, first castle, and even the first entry point for Christianity in the new world. Unfortunately today, only 11-12 percent of the population have a saving faith in Jesus Christ.
Envision DR has the great privilege of partnering with the Dominican Alliance Church to identify and develop the next generation of leaders through three main strategies: the Greenhouse University student center, One Child development centers, and local church ministry. Our main focus, the Greenhouse, is located next to the largest public university in the Dominican Republic, and we seek to be a place of refuge for their 50,000+ students. We love having both American and Dominican believers serve there with us as part of their own development and understanding of missions. Yes, the Dominican Republic is a beautiful island, but there is so much work left to do in spreading the gospel message!
