Alberto Rivas - Missionary

Christian Dominican Evangelistic Mission (CDEM)

Missionary: Alberto Rivas
Outside Church service in the compound.
In the spring of 2001, CDEM bought a compound in Monte Cristi to serve as their new base of operations as well as the location of a new church. Cristian, Evelin, and Cristian Manuel (4 years old) Lopez also joined the mission with Cristian becoming pastor of this new congregation.

In the fall of 2002, CDEM purchased a piece of land on which to build a baseball field. They plan to use baseball to draw in kids and adults in order to share the gospel. They have continued to haul van loads of people from this new neighborhood to church and other activities.
The roof goes up on the  church.  July 2007
They are also using this same idea with volleyball and basketball in the neighborhood of the compound. They have been able to meet many kids from the area through this sports ministry.

The dream of bringing Christ to the Dominicans in Monte Cristi continues. In 2004 property was purchased just half a block from the compound where CDEM hoped to build a church building. In July of 2007 the roof was going up on that dream.

We are excited about the work being done through CDEM and consider it a privilege to be allowed to serve with this mission. We would appreciate your prayerful consideration of supporting us in this ministry through your prayers and through your finances. We are trusting God to supply all of our needs.


Yes! I believe the work of bringing Christ to the northwestern shores of the Dominican is a great work!   I would like to partner with Alberto in the Dominican Republic in bringing God's Word to life for people in need...
