Dominican Republic

The beauty of the Dominican Republic stands in contrast with the physical and spiritual poverty of many on the island. Many nominally claim Catholicism as their religion but have no understanding of a personal relationship with God. The evangelical church is growing, and many are coming to know Christ as their personal Lord.

They are anxious to have mission groups come and encourage them. Medical and sports teams, vacation Bible schools, sharing at our schools, construction projects can all be part of the work God is doing in the Dominican Republic. Outreach opportunities are endless! Come join us in this exciting, very popular, mission field!

COI’s 16 years of hands-on experience pioneering Central Florida missions gives us expertise at making your Florida outreach a success! In 1997, COI started receiving teams in Indian River County. Because there was nothing like it in the area,COI’s influence in Florida grew. Our faithfulness and experience has created an impact affecting the entire region.

Over the years,hundreds of volunteers and mission teams have been blessed, serving with COI in Florida. We have found that doing outreach and community service here (domestic missions) is safe, warm, economical, fun, and a great way to touch lives in our own country!

Today, COI is building and strengthening our legacy of outreach and service in Florida. Our International HQ remains in Vero Beach. There are lots of good ministry opportunities in Florida, so we have expanded to include Orlando, and we are working on Tampa-St. Pete area for 2015.
