Living Sent Missions was founded in 2011 as a 501c3 ministry by founders John Anthony (Tony) and Melissa Luther. The inspiration for the development of LSM is the Biblical teaching that Jesus Christ is sending out all believers to live “sent” for Him where they are and to the utter most parts of the world. It is the calling of all Christians to share the good news of Jesus Christ, not just an elect few like pastors and missionaries. LSM gives Christians from all the United States and Canada the opportunity to live “sent” in the Dominican Republic and LSM teaches new believers in the Dominican Republic how to live “sent” for Jesus Christ right where they are.
It is the desire of LSM to defend those who can’t defend themselves and to serve the poorest of the poor, by giving Hope to the hopeless, bringing peace to the burdened and teaching others to Living sent for Jesus Christ.
We accomplish our mission by:
•Reaching the youth through an abstinence education presentation in the public schools.
•Reaching out to young girls and women in Crisis Pregnancy through the first ever Pregnancy Resource Center in the DR.
•Holding discipleship classes every week with men and women in the local churches.
•Making home visits, sharing the gospel with those who don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ.
•Hosting short-term mission teams in the Dominican Republic and equipping them with the tools they need to Live “Sent”, by serving alongside them, guiding them with what is most needed here in the Dominican Republic, encouraging them to share the love of Jesus, assisting them with ministry and taking them to the people who need to hear the gospel.
•Teaching English as a Second Language
•Coming alongside the local Dominican Pastors, building and growing the church and encouraging them in their own walk with God.
•Identifying those in the community who are motivated to take the next step up out of poverty. We connect these people with the resources needed to accomplish their goals whether that is furthering their education or starting their own business, as well as training and equipping them for various trades and how to run a business.
