Casa Bethesda Mission House

Dominican Republic

Casa Bethesda, a large residential property located about five minutes from Children of the Nations’ administrative office and medical center in downtown Barahona, serves as COTN's mission center in the Dominican Republic and also as base camp for visiting Venture participants.

The complex consists of a large main house with a living area, upstairs bedrooms, and a full kitchen where most meals are prepared. The main house and adjacent dormitories accommodate approximately 30 people. The buildings have running water, electricity with a back-up generator, air conditioning, and an outdoor swimming pool. The grounds are fully enclosed by a concrete wall and are staffed with 24-hour guards.

The property is also used to host COTN community and ministry events such as youth and staff retreats, graduations, and various celebrations. It is also available to the public for rent in an effort to generate income for the ministry.
