The Bible teaches that the church –not just select individuals–but all the church is created to reflect the glory of God to the world. In fact, the Great Commission commands us all to go into all the world and share the good news of Jesus Christ with all peoples. That is the heartbeat of the Missions Ministry at FBC JAX. We exist to equip and encourage our church family to share the gospel with people. We want everyone to have a vision for reaching people for Christ globally, nationally, and right here in our community. The need is great, but we can all play a part. Everyone can PRAY, everyone can GIVE, and everyone can GO—whether it is across the street or across the globe. Won’t you join with us as we seek to push back the darkness by sharing the good news of Jesus Christ? We invite you to review the programs and mission opportunities below and see where God leads you to serve. For more information on how you can become involved, contact the Missions Ministry at 904.366.1325 or email missions@fbcjax.com.

November 30-December 7, 2019 - Dominican Republic / Mission of Hope

The Dominican Republic is the second largest Caribbean nation by size and third by population. It is located on the island of Hispaniola, alongside Haiti. Despite improvements in recent years, there is still significant poverty throughout the Dominican Republic. Large communities of Haitian people have moved to the Dominican Republic in hopes of a better life, but they have instead been met with challenges. You can help share the love of Christ with the Haitian communities in the Dominican Republic, as well as other underserved communities, by serving on a Dominican Republic mission trip with Mission of Hope. Whatever your skills, there are ways for you to make an impact in the Dominican Republic.

Cost estimated at $2000.00 per person, includes accommodations, meals and airfare (does not include passport costs)
