About Makarios

Makarios means blessed and we have certainly seen God's hand on this ministry. Our story is a story of change. From the day we opened our doors in Montellano, Dominican Republic to the current expansion across the entire island, God has allowed this ministry to not only be changed but to help bring about change for His glory.

We believe that in order for generational change to occur in vulnerable communities, spiritual restoration must take place within the family unit. We dedicate our work to advancing God's kingdom by being vessels to bring about this change in the family, church, and school for a better future!

Equipping for change.


We believe in the power of family, especially in vulnerable communities. At our own Makarios School and Family Empowerment Center in the Dominican Republic, we design and test programs and activities that work towards spiritual restoration for systemic change. We refine for impact and then distribute them as equipping programs for Partner Schools and Churches.


We partner with local churches in vulnerable communities to equip them with family strengthening biblical resources and training and equipping programs so they can work towards healthy, spiritually restored families within their community. We then provide opportunities for these church families to serve through our School Partners Family Empowerment Programs within their communities.


We partner with under-resourced Christian schools to create Family Empowerment Programs based on our model that leverage their relationships with the parents in their schools in order to disciple the entire family. We provide these schools with training, support, continuing education, and staff (or servants from their local churches) as they work together towards systemic change through spiritual restoration of the family.

Lasting change begins with inward change.

Strengthening family.

In a world where the very idea of the family unit is under attack, it is increasingly evident that our work must focus on spiritual restoration within the home, especially in vulnerable communities. We are dedicated to preserving what God has instituted and recognize that a healthy, spiritually restored family brings about systemic change for generations to come. Our programs are backed by Scripture, geared towards true empowerment, and are focused on sustainable and effective restoration within entire communities.

Generosity is our privilege.

Together, we can bring about spiritual restoration for systemic change.
