Dear Friends,

Thank you for your continued support of STCH Ministries – not only through monetary contributions but through prayers, volunteering and donations of food and supplies. We are grateful to you! 

Each one of you impacts our ministry, and we are so thankful!  

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
 The Ministry Continues because of YOU!

We are SO EXCITED to announce with the help of our Samuel’s Fund Sponsors, we have the largest high school graduating class since the inception of the program in the Dominican Republic (DR). 

We have 22 high school graduates!

Many of these young people would not have achieved this goal without the sponsorship funding and the encouragement and support that is invested in each one by their sponsors, the DR Team, church and their families.  

How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!” – Proverbs 16:16
Introducing the Graduates from our Program:

What’s NEXT for our Seniors? As our Graduates transition out of the Samuel’s Fund Program, some are eligible to move into the sponsored-college program.

If they are eligible for this program, their current sponsor(s) are given the opportunity to continue alongside their journey and assist in this amazing opportunity. 

If the current sponsor decides not to continue, the student is placed into the Program and waits, by faith, for the opportunity to obtain their college degree by another sponsor.

What is the CLEP Fund Progam?

The Christian Leadership and Education Project (CLEP) is a sponsorship program that matches sponsors with Dominican college students.

The cost of a college education in the Dominican Republic is about $100 a month. You can sponsor this full amount or become a co-sponsor for $50 per month. As a CLEP Sponsor, you help develop independent young adults who impact their culture for Christ. 

Every sponsorship dollar goes directly to meet the needs of our sponsored children (not towards administrative costs).

What is the Samuel’s Fund Program?

Samuel’s Fund is a sponsorship program named after the Old Testament prophet who heard God’s call as a child and became a great leader, used by God in mighty ways. With the support of sponsors, Samuel’s Fund helps orphans and at-risk children, age four through high school, in the Dominican Republic develop spiritually, mentally and socially, allowing them to one day become Christian leaders in their communities.For $35 a month, a Samuel’s Fund sponsor brings hope and help to a child who desperately needs it.

Every sponsorship dollar goes directly to meet the needs of our sponsored children (not towards administrative costs).
