Moblizing netorks of people to impact the world for Christ by responding to physical and spritual needs

What is Thirst4?

Thirst4 is an interdenominational missions organization that focuses on discipleship. We emphasize prayer and relationships in our work among the poor. Simply put, we are humanitarian Christians (Matthew 5:6).

Our first trip to the Dominican Republic was in 1979. That is when this country gained a place in our hearts. We have formed a family there who rests in our hearts and never leaves. We have been involved in Santo Domingo, La Vega, Moca, and Puerto Plata. Currently the North Coast is in the most need because of the shift of tourism to Punta Cana, putting many people out of work in that area and increasing the percentage of people who need help. We will be building relationships, listening to the needs, and serving the people.

We believe that by bringing people to the Dominican Republic and seeing the opportunity to help in the 4 areas that are our distinctives, we will see lives changed through:

Clean Water

Sustainable Food


Medical Care

Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age’ (Matthew 28:18-20 NIV).

God's call to each individual is unique and specific to them. He uses their upbringing, surrounding environment, and experiences and couples them with His vision, goals and desires, to shape them into a unique tool for His hands to mold and guide and use (Ephesians 2:10).

God's will is for each individual to love God and love people, the first and second greatest commandments (Matthew 22:36-40). The Great Commission, found in Matthew 28:18-20, is an expression of those commandments to love. Jesus also tells us He has empowered us with authority and His presence.

We offer youth, college, adult, and family mission trips every year. With a focus on prayer and discipleship, our goal is to see lives radically transformed by God.

God has called us to the Dominican Republic where we see the need on the North Coast. We have an area of service for you—clean water, food, teaching English, medical, or building.
