Mission Trips with Severn Run

Jesus didn't lead people into classrooms...

He led them on the road so that they would bump into other broken people who did not yet know Jesus. That is what our Missions Ministry is all about, bumping into other broken people and serving them in meaningful ways in order for them to come to know Jesus on a personal level. 

This year we are sending several teams out to our international partner ministries:

- Dominican Republic Mission Trip: May 5-12, 2019 (See below for details and to register)

Upcoming Trips

Dominican Republic

May 5-12, 2019
Approximate Cost: $1600*
Overview
Meet ICC Church in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic!

They are an inner city church who does as much to break out of their walls as they do to invite people into their walls. They are a contemporary church, who spends every day being the hands and feet of Jesus in their community.

Every day ICC feeds hundreds of Santo Domingo's homeless population. Over lunch each person hears that they are loved for Jesus while sharing a delicious meal. ICC also provides homes that they have built in their parking lot for over a dozen elderly homeless who are often abandoned by families who can no longer care for them.

ICC also has a Montessori school who specializes in serving kids with special needs. Did you know that in the Dominican Republic kids with special needs are often excluded from even public schools? There is an awful stigma surrounding individuals with special needs in the DR that ICC is determined to demolish by seeking out kids who have never even been allowed out of their home due to their disabilities.

ICC also hosts AA and NA groups for those wishing to recover from addictions. Some of the life change stories of ICC members will blow your mind! They also host medical missions and offer life-saving surgeries to those who would otherwise die or live miserably without it.

ICC is planning to expand their school, and we are going in May to do whatever we can to assist them. Apply today to meet people you'll call life-long friends who love like Jesus! ICC members are honorary Severn Runners and we are honorary ICCers.
 
Details
First, we will be visiting IBCC (Iglesia Biblica Cristiana de Consuelo) in Consuelo. They serve over 500 children and families through their partnership with Compassion International and serve the community around them in countless ways! We will be assisting them in building an addition to their school to better serve their school ministry.

Second, we will visit ICC (Iglesia Comunitaria Cristiana) in the colonial city of Santo Domingo. They have a school that serves special needs children who would otherwise have no school options. ICC also reaches their community through facilities that serve the elderly and homeless on a daily basis. While we are there we will be able to assist with improving their facilities and conditioning a new space that will be used to provide a medical ministry to those they serve.

I want to go to the DR to build lasting relationships and, most importantly, when you see the situations and conditions that people live in many countries that you visit, you sense God’s amazing compassion and then encounter how big God’s heart is.

I know how it feels to be blessed. I want to be able to be there for others so they can also feel blessed. I hope that I can show them that God is in all of us and that He gives love through us as well.
