Our DRCC Mission Teams to Central America have built a relationship with sister-churches in Copan Ruinas, Santa Barbara & San Pedro Sula in Honduras. We work with local farmers, build schools, help with water purification projects, offer medical clinics to prisons and communities, feed the homeless, and share the love of Jesus with children and youth.

Missionaries from DRCC have been going to Germany to help lead Baseball Camps for Jesus since 2012. For the first three years the camps were held only in the city of Aurich, but a second camp was started in the city of Vechta in the summer of 2015.
Through our partnerships with the YMCA, Free Evangelical Church, Evangelical Free Baptist Church and the First United Methodist Church in Carrollton, TX, we reach over 100 at-risk youth each year, to bring healing from drugs, alcohol, depression, and suicide using the game of baseball to draw young people to camp, where we build relationships and earn the right to share the good news of Jesus.

The prayer of Jesus was that we would pray for heaven to come down to earth and God’s will be done. So, we desire to bring the hope, love and joy of Jesus to every corner of the planet through Mission India, as with all our DRCC outreach efforts. We do this by working collaboratively with local leaders, building mutual trust and accountability and getting our hands dirty alongside our local partners.
Tugela Ferry, The Rock of Life Church, Khayelisha Care Center, Lobethal Independent School
Damascus Road Community Church began its partnership with the Tugela Ferry Mission of South Africa offering much needed prayer, friendship and resources under a spirit of servanthood and respect. The Mission includes the Rock of Life Church, the Khayelisha Care Centre, and the Lobethal Independent School.
It’s a small mission in terms of staff members and resources, but its influence is wide-spread throughout the region supporting the construction of school facilities and additional classrooms for the Lobethan Independent School, providing school supplies, teaching materials, professional training, tools and a feeding program for 20 children to receive daily food during school and more.
& Puerto rico
Mission Appalachia is a Middle School mission that serves the people of Johnstown, Pennsylvania by providing and completing yard work for shut-ins, VBS for children, and painting or construction projects that the community may need. We also provide assistance and coaching for those that are struggling with addictions or are in a single-parent family situation that is in need of assistance. We support several local churches and our goal is to have those churches continue with whatever ministries we help with throughout the rest of the year.
The Bread of Life Crew serves the Frederick Rescue Mission each month on the third Monday from 4:30 to 6:30pm. The crew plans, prepares, and serves a home-cooked meal while enjoying a time of fellowship with the residents. For more info, contact Melissa Brockway at email@example.com.
Vieques, Puerto Rico
Vieques, Puerto Rico, is still recovering from the devastation of hurricane Maria. When we are permitted to enter the country once again, we will join forces with our brothers and sisters at Fe Que Transforma (Faith That Transforms) to share hope and healing with the community of Vieques, Puerto Rico. Due in part to the effects of Hurricane Maria and the recent earthquakes, the people of this island have experienced food shortages, lack of adequate medical care and fear of other natural disasters. Our focus on this trip is to share the Gospel through uniquely tailored child and adult initiatives. In particular, we will host a Resilience Camp that teaches children survival skills during a natural disaster while also introducing them to Jesus. Classes will also be offered to help parents learn how to guide their children in challenging circumstances.
There is a significant elderly and invalid population on the island. As a result, we are going to conduct caregiver training and a respite program. In addition, we are building a playset for the children and expanding the food pantry storage.
We are looking for individuals who want to grow deeper in their relationship with Christ. Together we will worship, dig into scripture, pray and serve. We are not looking for people with all the answers but for those who know their need and are willing to keep their hands, minds and hearts open to God's direction.
