Since 2017, we have served primarily at Seminario Bautista Internacional in the city of La Romana, Dominican Republic. I (James) serve in several areas. I am the academic dean, a professor in the seminary, and I also work in the IT department. This ministry is vital to the churches of the Dominican Republic, as many pastors serve without formal training. There is a lack of qualified men to lead church planting efforts. We firmly believe the the church of Christ grows through the clear exposition and teaching of the Word of God.
In conjunction with the seminary ministry, we serve in local church ministries. I preach and teach, and Lauren leads the Wednesday night children’s program. We are also involved as a family in the ministry to the Bethesda Orphanage, a ministry of the local church.
