About Us

Who We Are

2nd Mile Missions is a Christian ministry focused on providing educational, spiritual and nutritional enrichment for children in the Dominican Republic. We believe that taking care of a child’s basic needs in a loving, nurturing environment will help children stuck in poverty become productive, independent adults.

He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. “Is that not what it means to know me?” declares the Lord. – Jeremiah 22:16

Founded in 2006, the ministry is partnered with a local church in Bavaro, Church of God for the Nations. Pastor Pascual Borrell and his church have a passion to reach the lost and provide hope for the searching. 2nd Mile Missions has worked alongside the church to provide education and support to hundreds of children in poverty.

Our goal is to continue providing opportunities for children and adults to grow spiritually and academically so we can help them break the cycle of poverty in their world. We are committed to Christ, the people and our calling to partner with the local church.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to spread the love of Christ by disrupting the cycle of poverty in impoverished communities.  We will do this by providing children and adults with educational resources, spiritual enrichment, and employment and business opportunities.  We will also spread our passion by inviting others to observe and participate in this healing process first hand.


Vision Statement

Through our efforts, we desire that everyone we serve leads a productive, healthy, self-sustaining, independent life – and, most importantly, develops a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Through this impact we hope to perpetuate a culture of love and care in the areas we serve, in which community members take care of their fellow citizens out of love, and the effects of poverty no longer exist.
