Embark on a Journey of Faith, Hope, and Service

Welcome to Forward Church's inspiring and life-changing mission trips to the Dominican Republic and Haiti in 2013. As a faith-based community with a deep commitment to serving others, we embarked on this incredible journey to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need. Through our collective efforts and guided by our shared values, we strove to uplift communities, spread hope, and build lasting relationships in the process.

Our Mission

At Forward Church, we believe in living out our faith through action. Our mission trips to the Dominican Republic and Haiti were an opportunity for our members to embrace this belief wholeheartedly. We aimed to make a tangible difference and provide much-needed support to the local communities, promoting empowerment, education, and sustainable development.

The Journey

Our journey started with a shared commitment to service and a desire to make a lasting impact on the lives of others.
