CASAS POR CRISTO

April 18th - 23rd, 2021 | Dominican Republic

This a Hope Restored trip, which means North Ridge has paid for the cost of the house being built and has opened this trip up to individuals and other small teams who want to serve, but might not be able to fill their own trip. This is a chance to serve alongside someone new and ensure that the mission of building homes in the DR continues to move forward in a time where large group trips can be tricky to pull off. If you're interested in serving on this trip, please email Amanda Bestmann.

A Look Into Their Ministry


Casas Por Cristo exists to open the door for local pastors and churches
to share the love of Jesus Christ by serving.

WHAT THEY DO
Build
"We build homes for families that need to be reminded that Jesus loves them. We build relationships between volunteers, families, and pastors that would otherwise never have met. We strive to build the Kingdom of God by partnering with other local churches and ministries. We strive to build opportunities for growth by creating structured experiences that cause our volunteers to be stretched beyond their comfort zones."
Serve
"Through this building process, God allows us to interact with our teams, local families, pastors, churches, vendors, and fellow missionaries. We do not want to take any of these interactions for granted. We believe that these are unique opportunities presented to us by God to serve each other."

Our 2020 goal

In 2019, we were able to fund the construction of two homes in Juarez, Mexico, alongside Casa Por Cristo. In 2020, we doubled our goal to raise $50,000, funding four homes.

Your generosity greatly exceeded this goal and now we get to build five homes, support another Casas missionary, and make it possible for more churches to partner with Casas. That's amazing!!

In a town like Juarez, having a home that is safe, structurally sound, and connected to utilities is a big deal and we want to be FOR the families who are being handed the keys and learning about the character of Jesus through on-the-ground missionaries.
