Ministry Location: The Dominican Republic
Ministry Focus: We will be joining up with Every Day Ministries Canada (EDMC) who partners with local evangelical pastors and leaders on the north east coast of the Dominican Republic to equip, empower, and encourage them, their families, churches, and communities through leadership development, community development and land development so they can more effectively preach the Gospel and make disciples.

Transforming this land from an area of pastureland and fruit trees to a Missions and Training Centre buzzing with activity and facilitating the equipping, empowering, and transformation of countless pastors, leaders, congregations, and communities.

- Oversee the construction of church projects.This includes assessing church construction proposals, establishing a cost for the church construction and/or renovation and/or repairs, helping with short-term mission construction teams and working with local volunteer/paid construction teams.
Rhonda will be assisting Trent in the various projects and construction administrative needs. She also has a great passion to reach and help with family, youth and children needs.
Ministry History: We are so pleased to be returning to International Missions. Our first time to serve and obey God’s call was to help run a 110 plus children orphanage in Tanzania, Africa from 2006 to 2009. Our whole family experienced this remarkable time to see God’s love and mercy extended to the most needy and helpless in our world: this changed us all forever. Now having another opportunity to serve the local people in the Dominican Republic and team up with EDMC has brought great joy and excitement.
- Pray for individual and church partners to come along side us and the work projects to help practically demonstrate God care and compassion.
- Please pray for safety, health and protection as we again respond to God’s call and work.
- Pray for us as we plan and prepare to enter Spanish language training school.
