MISSION TRIPS TO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
If your church group, youth group, school group, medical group, or family wants to make a difference, group mission trips to the Dominican Republic provide the perfect opportunity. With several connections to churches, ministries, and communities throughout the DR, your team can make a significant impact with Bold Hope.
THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC SHORT-TERM MISSION TRIPS
When you partner with Bold Hope for a mission trip to the DR, your team will serve Haitian workers and their families who live in bateyes (bah-TAYs), small settlements in the centers of sugarcane plantations. These little villages lack basic resources such as stable housing, medical care, education, and water. While you are in the Dominican Republic, you will get to experience the beautiful landscape of a Caribbean Island and build meaningful connections with these incredible people. They are creatives, dreamers, and joyful hope givers, bearing many talents and gifts to give the world around them. Your life will forever be changed by hearing their stories and walking alongside them, even if, just for a brief time.
Your team will work alongside our missionary partners who know where help is truly needed. From reinforcing structures to offering children/youth programs and events, you’ll not only have the opportunity to interact with locals, but you’ll provide encouragement to those who serve there year-round.
In addition to these projects, Bold Hope also books Dominican Republic medical mission trips for medical professionals looking to use their gifts and talents to serve internationally. There is great need for basic medical care and wellness visits as healthcare is often inaccessible for the communities we serve.
Bold Hope helps you and your team support impoverished communities in the DR. Spend time engaging and building relationships with our team members and the local community. Bring love and laughter to children by making crafts and give comfort to those who have lost their way spiritually. Whatever work your group does, your seven-day trip will add to the work our partners do all year to empower and transform lives.
To learn more about how you could contribute to bateyes in the DR, read about our Bold Hope missionaries and partnerships below.
Bold Hope Missionary TeamLa Romana, Dominican Republic
Our team of missionaries has been in the Dominican Republic since early 2020, after having to permanently leave Haiti due to the rising unrest on the other side of the island of Hispaniola. In the summer of 2021, a new family joined them, adding to the talents and gifts of this growing team in the DR.
With Brazilians and Americans on the ground, we are passionate about seeing leaders, churches, and entire communities empowered with the gospel of Jesus. We work directly with churches and other ministries to empower local families so they can be agents of transformation wherever they are. Through child sponsorship, our intent is to see whole families thriving through our training and discipleship programs.
Iglesia Bautista La Romana - Pastor RamonLa Romana, Dominican Republic
Like Pastor Mede, Pastor Ramon is another “man of peace” (Luke 10:6) we find in La Romana. Esteemed in the local community, he works in five different social projects; not just preaching the gospel but living it in a fulfilling way. It's been an honor to serve his church and to see all that God is doing through them.
the Dominican Republic Hope Initiatives
Our missionary and local pastoral partners have undertaken projects and programs with the aim of inspiring HOPE in the people they serve, many of whom are overlooked by the country they call home. Bold Hope seeks to come alongside the good work these faithful men and women are doing long-term, supporting their vision by providing financial assistance and short-term mission teams.

Why should you plan a mission trip with Bold Hope?
Bold Hope works a little differently from other organizations. When you partner with Bold Hope to schedule a mission trip to the Dominican Republic or another country, we provide you with accommodations in a hotel, hostel or guest house to make sure you have the rest you need to serve those around you.
In addition to your lodging, we ensure you're comfortable in this new country by providing a Bold Hope team member for guidance and a translator when needed. You'll also receive three meals a day and in-country transportation. We offer this foundation to make sure you can focus your energy on service opportunities for the community.
