Sports in the Dominican Republic (Women)

Through the women’s sports site, SI is able to visit rural communities and reach young girls who would otherwise be in the process of getting married and starting a family. With that, we offer a program where the girls can be involved with a group of similar young women who want to break the generational norms of this culture. Through hard work and faithfulness, the girls are also offered a chance to play for the varsity team, which competes with other teams in the area. In addition, the site assists girls in being accepted to private schools so they can receive a better education than what is offered in the public school system. Participants will help with practices, English classes, and bible studies, as well as get a chance to play alongside the girls.

Sports in the Dominican Republic (Men)

The purpose of this site is to use sports, particularly baseball, as a way to develop relationships with the young men and boys through which the Gospel can effectively be communicated. Although the site typically concentrates on baseball, it can include basketball and soccer. Daily bible studies and home visits contribute to achieving the goal of changing lives. Participants will be used to help with the bible studies and practices, as well as share their own testimony to the boys in the site.

Outreach Dates

“...God has been showing me through the SI staff and the Dominican people what true ministry is all about. Ministry is about relationships, not just tasks; and even more than that it’s about being open to God using you in whatever way possible.”
