Clean Water Well Now Flowing!

“For I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink”…clean, affordable water last week from our first well in the Dominican Republic. We rejoice with Pst. Freddy for the impact the well will have in the poor community of Santa Fe. Also, a micro-finance project for the teachers salaries at the school there, Ebenezer. Heartfelt thanks to all that made it possible, especially Hillcrest Academy, long-time COI partners from Minnesota. The water is flowing!! Mission trips, mission projects touching regions and nations. Something to live for!! 

Inaugural COI Mission team landed…COI Kenya!!

Our national missionary Dr. Paul Kamunge  and COI WV/ Kenya Staff Pst. Tim Bolyard welcome the 28 missionaries from All Nations Worship Assembly, Chicago 2017 missions Team! Jesus said go into the highways and byways…It is a value of our mission organization to send the teams that go out with us in the nations to far away villages, or villages that have probably never had visits from American believers. 

Beautifully, it happened again today at the women’s Bible studies in the villages. Praise offered, testimony’s shared, fellowship over great meals, and many prayers offered….even by the youngest on the team from Chicago! Short term mission trips done right change lives all around. Out director received her call to ministry on a mission trip. It propelled her forward in God. Prompted her parents to start COI. We do much of what we do today because of it.

We create opportunities for those that come behind us to find their passion, pursue their purpose, make a real difference, and get wrecked with His heart.
Every believer deserves this kind of opportunity. Go into all the world.

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.
