Dominican Republic Mission Partnership (FORO)
Since 2007, the South Wisconsin District has been part of a unique process in the Dominican Republic to plant a confessional Lutheran church. Our core partners include: the Office of International Mission-LCMS, Bethesda Lutheran Communities and most recently the English District-LCMS. However, the broader partnership is much larger; ranging from a congregation in Florida to the Lutheran Church of Brazil, as well as Concordia Lutheran Seminary in Buenos Aires Argentina.
As part of the Dominican Republic FORO (partnership), congregations of SWD have the opportunity to participate in mission trips to the DR. These include the traditional construction projects which help the mission establish a permanent identity in a community to music camps and youth retreats.
Below is a schedule of 2014-2015 Short-Term Mission Opportunities for Adults or Family Teams. These “mission trips” are coordinated through Most Ministries. Their website is: http://www.mostministries.org
If you have questions, you can all the SWD office, 414-464-8100, to talk with President Wille.
