Equipping the Next Generation of Christ-Centered Leaders

Mission

Mission Possible seeks to Equip the Next Generation of Christ-Centered Leaders. Mission Possible was established in 1979 to share the good news of God's love and blessings for the people of Haiti. Mission Possible began constructing and establishing Christian schools, shipping needed supplies and providing food for the needy. In 1988, the mission expanded to the Dominican Republic. Mission Possible and her sister organization, Mission Possible Canada, serve both countries together in joint ministry. Mission Possible works for meaningful progress by equipping and training Haitians and Dominicans to use their God given abilities to reach out in love to serve their countrymen.

Christian Leadership Development

Mission Possible helps improve lives educationally, spiritually, and physically. Educationally, Mission Possible is actively constructing schools. The Mission currently directs 10 primary and secondary Christian Schools that serve approximately 2,300 children. The education in Mission Possible schools is both academic and Christian to build wisdom and moral character. Mission Possible provides regular feeding programs for all the school children. The Mission also runs Christian training classes and sends Christian leaders to Bible College. Mission Possible hosts short-term mission teams. The Mission hosts many such teams from the US and Canada to increase their understanding, to involve them in practical outreach, work, medical or dental projects, and to help them make a difference.
