God transforms lives through meaningful relationships.
This is the foundation of how we do ministry. By connecting with people through discipleship, trainings, and classes, we're able to form these relationships. This allows us to intentionally walk with them through life. Being able to invest in their well-being on a daily basis can have a lasting impact. Each ministry within Makarios provides different ways to invest in people and change lives.
Through Family Empowerment, we're able to build lasting relationships with our students’ parents. This program provides trainings, resources, and spiritual guidance to give them tools to parent better, and provide them with more opportunities. Through family empowerment, literacy rates are going up, family conflicts are being resolved, and most importantly, more people are experiencing the love and grace of knowing Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Going on a group trip is an incredible opportunity to meet people, serve others, and experience life in the Dominican Republic. Group Ministry is driven by people like you offering to give up your time for a week of selfless serving, child-like joy, and building relationships. During the week, groups will go out into communities to learn about life in the DR and minister to and love on people. Groups also help teach VBS and sports camps for students in the communities. Not only is this fun and beneficial for families in the community, but it will leave a lasting impact on you and the way you perceive the world.
Biblical integration is an essential part of how we educate our students. We want them to know who the Lord is and to teach them about His grace and goodness. Discipling students while providing a quality education is a way to give them the resources and tools they need for spiritual growth and success. With these, they'll have opportunities for a promising future and become positive influences in their communities. Students will be equipped to serve Jesus Christ while working to end generational poverty.
Relationships are the glue that holds Makarios together. God moves through people and strengthens gospel-centered friendships. Through the gospel, people from all different backgrounds and parts of the world are able to come together and find common ground. Sponsorships not only provide for the physical needs of our students, but also provide an incredible opportunity for people like you to have a strong, positive relationship with a Makarios student and their family. Sponsorship gives you the opportunity to change someone's life.
