The Pierre’s Ministry Story

The celebration of a new year for Ketly and Vital Pierre included giving thanks to God for a new ministry in the Caribbean during the last portion of 2015. Since 1999, they have served for 16 years as International Ministries' (IM) missionaries on the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua. The Pierre's are now applying their skills to strengthen local congregations and encourage existing churches to start new ones on the East Coast of the Dominican Republic (DR). The couple's ministry will focus on leading and coordinating seminars and workshops to equip Haitian Baptist Church leaders to begin and strengthen a broad range of outreach ministries in their communities. The Pierre's will also serve as a link with volunteer groups, matching them with local ministries according to where they would be the most effective. They will encourage and facilitate Haitian mission work both within the DR and beyond.

Ketly and Vital are now connecting with people, bringing new life in Christ and hope to communities where they are invited to serve. The people here are grateful and thankful for their leadership and God is using them to encourage others as they follow Jesus. They have been averaging about one mission group every two months from the United States and the people of the DR love to meet the volunteers. Click on the DR link above and you can learn about opportunities to serve there.

They have two discipleship groups, a pastors wive's support group, and two worship leader groups that will be discipled. Ketly is working with the young people. One 20-year-old woman testifies that although she had heard the truth from the pulpit, through her discipleship group, she is now learning to live it and lead a life of personal devotion to the Lord. A young man of 30, who is a new deacon in the group Vital is discipling, shared that since being a part of that group, God is now the center of his life and all of his decisions are now guided by that reality.

The Pierre’s have said, “We have been invited to walk side-by-side and disciple those that God has called for His service. As Paul wrote in Ephesians 4:12-13, 'to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.' Yes, it is our deepest desire for God to continue to use us, to do great things in the DR, through the Dominicans and Haitians who are here, in the world."

Rev. Adalia Gutierrez Lee, Area Director of Iberoamerica and the Caribbean for International Ministries said: "I have had the privilege to experience what true friendship and collaboration is about. Through daily discipleship, our Haitian-descent brothers and sisters like Ketly and Vital serve and empower their own people who work in the Dominican Republic's sugar cane bateys and team up with those visionaries from previous generations who first shared God's love and passion for mission among them."
