Who can apply for Practicum~Dominican Republic?
Alumni of PWI are eligible to apply for Practicum. We will take a team of approximately 7-10 people so get your application in early.
What will be we be doing for this Practicum?
This will be our third summer in the Dominican Republic. There we go by the name Proskuneo Instituto de Adoración (PIA). Our students are age 16 and up. Just like the US version, the students come from churches around the island and for one week we dig deep into worship. John Piper once said, “Missions exists because worship doesn’t.” It is our goal to show worshipers how to use their gifts and talents to glorify God and make His name known among the nations. We will accept approximately 25 applications from students in the Dominican Republic, ages 16 – 30, for this amazing worship intensive.
We are currently making arrangements for our exact location. We will update this page as soon as plans are definitive. In the past we have been in the village of Lajas in the mountains outside of Santiago.
When will we go?
Practicum~Dominican Republic will be just before PWI 2018~US. We will have two training/preparation days on Thursday, June 21 and Friday, June 22. We plan to fly from Atlanta to the DR on Saturday, June 23 with a return flight on Sunday, July 1.
The total cost of the trip is approximately $1,250.00. This includes airfare to/from the DR, flight insurance, a Dominican Republic tourist card, transportation on the ground in the DR, lodging and meals. (Price may vary slightly based on current airfares at the time of booking.)
You will need to have a valid passport. If you do not currently hold a passport, the process takes around 4 – 8 weeks and costs around $150.00 including photos.
You will be responsible for turning in your documents and money by the deadlines listed below. Proskuneo Ministries will make all travel arrangements so that the team will travel together from Atlanta, GA.
