Dominican Republic

Bill Stothers will tell you that missions is the “greatest adventure of my life”. As a boy he dreamed of being a professional baseball player. That dream ended at age 20. Soon after, he and wife Priscilla were called to serve as church planters in the Dominican Republic. American GIs had played baseball in the sugarcane fields of the DR. It caught on and kids grew up playing in neighborhood clubs. Today the DR is a hotbed of young baseball talent that feeds US Major League teams. Bill leads a team of 18 volunteer chaplains who provide spiritual care for 30 Major League baseball academies and 6 winter league ball teams. Bible studies and chapels are held weekly, young men and staff are having significant spiritual conversations, and lives are being transformed by the power of the gospel.
