Every year the Iglesia Evangélica Dominicana holds its general assembly in January at their church camp in Bani. There are 217 delegates who attend the assembly which include the national pastors, lay pastors and church leaders. They share their church reports, elect heads of service areas, and fellowship together. Every four years a new Executive Secretary is elected. Reverend Miguel Angel Cancu has begun his second term as Executive Secretary serving the IED churches.
The missionaries and volunteers are invited to fellowship with the pastors during this time. We are nine in total, spread throughout the country. It has been fun for Gordy and I to get acquainted with many of the pastors and also exciting as we are beginning ministries together.
