Missionaries from DRCC have been going to Germany to help lead Baseball Camps for Jesus since August of 2012. For the first three years the camps were held only in the city of Aurich, but a second camp was started in the city of Vechta in the summer of 2015.

Why send missionaries to Germany? After all, the reformation started in Germany and the German people are economically rich compared to our other global mission destinations. But wealth can severely dull spiritual hunger. It is estimated that only 2-3% of the German people are born-again believers in Jesus Christ. They are materially well off, but have the same problems with drugs, alcohol, sexual immorality, depression, suicide, and purposelessness evident in the USA. We are using the game of baseball to draw young people to the camp, through which we build relationships and earn the right to share the good news of Jesus Christ with them.

In Aurich we partner with the YMCA, Free Evangelical Church, Evangelical Free Baptist Church and the First United Methodist Church in Carrollton, Texas, to reach out to over 100 youth each year. In Vechta, which is about an hour and a half away from Aurich, we are working with a pastor and his family to help start a Free Evangelical Church. The first camp had about 30 participants and leaders involved, but we expect that to double this summer and eventually grow to over 100.

As students come to know the Lord, we are excited to be able to direct them to one of these church bodies. The goal is to carry out the Great Commission: “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 Jesus has commanded us” (Matthew 28:19-20).

BELONG

We belong to Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. And He invites us to belong to a community of faith. Whether a lifetime Christian, a new believer or just curious about the faith, you are welcome here at Damascus Road Community Church. Understand what we believe, who makes up our leadership team and the pathway to membership.

CONNECT

In a larger church it can be a challenge to feel personally connected. Allow us to help you. Whether searching for calendar information, a larger event in which to get a better taste of DRCC, a smaller group to be a part of, or personal care for the struggles and celebrations of life… this is a good place to start.

GROW

Grow in biblical knowledge and spiritual wisdom. Know what you believe and how to apply it to your everyday life. Sink deep roots into God’s Word through our ministries, classes or sermon library resources, and be better equipped to give an answer for your faith, discern truth and weather the storms of life.

GIVE

As Christ gave his life for us, so also we give back to our local community of faith a portion of our time, talent and treasure. In so doing we release the grip of selfishness and idolatry in our lives. And our brothers and sisters receive the encouragement they need to carry on.

GO

Beyond our home, school and workplace, Damascus Road Community Church offers opportunities to go near and far in sharing the Good News of Christ through tangible acts of service. Our missions’ teams partner with established churches and pastors to spread the Gospel, nurture long-term relationships and build sustainable solutions to address needs for today and into the future.
