Helping the Dominican Republic

WAY Radio has joined with Crossover CUPS Mission to help a village in the Dominican Republic, specifically the mountain village of Alto de la Jagua. In February 2021, the WAY Radio listeners in Brunswick and in Jacksonville provided the funding needed to construct a community center. The WAY Radio community center in Alto de la Jagua will provide discipleship programs, including the Boys’ Life Basketball Discipleship program. It will provide a meeting place for the 200 children in the village to learn about Jesus while being afforded the opportunity to have programs that will challenge them to avoid the traditional traps of poverty in the Dominican Republic. Too many children, without programs like ours, end up trapped in a life of abuse and exploitation. Our Boys’ Life Basketball Discipleship program empowers young men to become leaders in spreading the gospel in their communities.

YOU CAN SEE THE WORK IN PERSON! Want to see the community center as it’s being built, or plan a trip for when it’s completed? You can work with Crossover CUPS Mission and visit the mountain village that WAY Radio’s listeners and staff have adopted … Alto de la Jagua.

WHAT’S NEXT? Once the community center is running, we’ll begin planning for the trade programs that will help give children an alternative to the exploitation that so many endure. Life skills like sewing and baking help the children eventually find REAL employment, while continuing to grow in their newfound faith in Christ.

JOIN US! WAY Radio in Jacksonville and in Brunswick are excited about what the future holds for the residents of Alto de la Jagua. Together we can make a difference in the Caribbean. Join us on a visit, join us in prayer, join us in support.


Exciting things are happening in the Dominican Republic with our new Men of Honor program!
In the Dominican Republic, as in many countries, there is a mentality that men are solely meant to make money. The men in these villages are raised in this mindset and oftentimes their families can suffer. Brokenness exists everywhere in our world and Men of Honor exists to to show these men that they are more than just tools for work, they are leaders in their communities, husbands to their wives, fathers to the children, and, most importantly, servants of God. 
This past December, Men of Honor was able to have its first bi-annual day-long conference to start the conversations to discuss the topic of what it means to be men. Over 80 men participated in this event and since then, more and more men just keep asking “What’s next?” “When will we be meeting again?” 
Coming soon, we will host our second Men of Honor Conference to bring more of these discourses to light. The men coming out of Men of Honor are taking big steps towards a different future and a different culture for their children. We are not satisfied to continue in the way the system says men ought to be and neither are these men, they are seeking after the way Scripture defines how men ought to be. 
It is not just twice yearly events with Men of Honor either. There is continual discipleship of these men through communication face to face and over messaging systems where there are daily reminders, lessons, and Scriptures bringing up Truth again and again about the proper way to live and treat your families and those around you. 
The missionaries in the Dominican Republic are coming alongside these men to train up a new mentality – a mentality where men protect their families, a mentality where they cherish their wives as Christ cherishes His church, and a mentality where God comes first in their households. 
Together, we are fighting for transformation in the lives of these men so that they too can turn and do the same in the lives of the other men they come into contact with.
2 Timothy 2:2 “And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.”
