The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) shares a uniquely ecumenical witness to the gospel in the Dominican Republic, joining other North American Protestant churches in ministry there. Congregations of the PC(USA) and Dominican congregations build relationships with each other on their shared faith, mutuality and respect, and commitment to learn from one another. Because of the proximity of the Dominican Republic to the United States, Dominican Christians work with many Presbyterian mission groups each year.
The PC(USA) has a long and continuing history of participation with Dominican Christians in their ministries of evangelism, health education and care, development of water sources, academic education and outreach to Haitian immigrants.
