Dominican Republic

Mission Emanuel is a long-time ministry partner of First Pres. Through Mission Emanuel, we have the opportunity to serve our friends in the small communities of Cielo and Nazaret in the Dominican Republic. Mission Emanuel aims to transform communities through the power of Jesus Christ through short-term mission work and relational ministry.

Our church partners with the Presbyterian Church of Zagazig, which is affiliated with the ECO Synod of the Nile.

The Outreach Foundation is a helpful source to find updates and needs from our friends in Egypt.


Although trips are currently on pause due to the global pandemic, we believe that God is still on the move in Egypt. In the future, we hope to resume short-term trips to Zagazig. Here are the opportunities that typically exist within this partnership:

Vision Trip: Come and see God at work in Egypt! Led by the Outreach Foundation, this relationship-centered trip focuses on encouraging and being encouraged by the leaders and churches throughout Egypt.

Traveling Care Team: This small team will represent First Presbyterian Church for our annual “family reunion” in Zagazig. In general, membership of this team involves a commitment of 2-3 years of annual travel and builds off of the Vision Trip. Travel expenses for this team will be covered by the church.

Prayer Requests

  1. Wisdom in producing evangelizing videos.
  2. Funds and guidance for the construction of an orphanage for girls.
  3. Help for families and youths as they go through their final exams for the school year.


Our church partners with Haiti Outreach Ministries. HOM aims to “share the gospel with the people of Haiti through evangelism, education, and medical care.”


Short-term trips are currently postponed due to the global pandemic.

First Pres has previously been involved in short-term mission work in Haiti, having helped to rebuild after the devastating hurricane in 2012. Since then the partnership with HOM’s church and school have grown, medical teams have traveled and provided care, and a team from FPC helped to dig a well, providing clean water for the community.


Haiti Outreach Ministries asks for prayers for Haiti. Over the past month (May 2022), violence and insecurity skyrocketed, leading to an estimated 200 deaths in the capital Port-au-Prince. Many people have been displaced or have fled from their homes, seeking safety in the countryside or other areas. People are very scared and are on edge as daily life and routine activities are difficult due to fear of violence and kidnapping.


  • Please pray for a return to peace and stability.
  • Please pray for the hearts of those involved in gangs, that their hearts would be softened, and they would turn away from violence against their brothers & sisters.
  • Please pray for those in power, that they would use their position for good and turn away from greed or self-interest.
  • Please pray for those who are scared, that they would feel God’s love, care, and protection.
    Please pray for our Haitian staff as they serve our ministry, that they would have courage and feel’s God protection over them.
  • Please pray for a better future for all of Haiti.

Prayer For All Nations

We go and make disciples of all nations through prayer. Join a weekly prayer group that prays for nations and people groups who have not yet heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each week, we learn about three people groups who are unreached and lift them up in prayer. Help us pray that all people would encounter Christ, and that the Spirit would enable His followers to participate in His mission to go and make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:19-20). We also pray for specific needs from our Missional Partners.
