About Dominican Advance

Dominican Advance began in 2006 in the Dominican Republic as the vision of Dr. Kim & Josie Pensinger. Prior to coming to the Dominican, they had over 25 years of experience ministering in Canada, the United States, Argentina and Costa Rica. What they saw in the Dominican Republic inspired them to dedicate the remainder of their lives to providing a brighter future for the Dominican people.

Dominican Advance, Inc was incorporated as a 501 c 3 non-profit in the United States in 2007. In 2008, the ministry was incorporated as a non-profit charity in the Dominican Republic under the name Avance Dominicano. In 2010, Dominican Advance Christian Charity was incorporated in Ontario and received acceptance as a registered public charity in Canada.

Dominican Advance, Inc is blessed to be governed by an experienced, well qualified board of directors that assures the integrity of Dominican Advance's operations and its adherence to its mission statement.

Dr. Kim & Josie travel between the US and the DR on a regular basis. They have three adult children who all live in the United States.

   Three Areas of Mission:

Educate Children

Dominican Advance's schools for quality Christian education are among the most highly regarded in the area. They have received the praise of government officials, TV & radio personalities, and fellow missionaries. Over 300 needy children attend a Dominican Advance school each day.

Empower Entrepreneurs

The Microbusiness Empowerment program provides budding Dominican entrepreneurs with the merchandise, equipment, tools and training they need to start, run, and grow their own small business. The program has a 90% rate of success at the one year milestone of business operation.

Equip Christian Leaders

Dominican Advance works with local pastors to provide them with the equipping and encouragement they need for their own personal development and so they can grow life-giving congregations. Programs include pastors/wives conferences, theological courses, and pastoral intensives.

Effectively Showing Compassion
Compassion sees need and reaches out to meet it. Unfortunately, without wise investigation, compassion produces only frustration and limited results. Dominican Advance believes that after examining our programs you will find us worthy of your sponsorship, grant or gift dollars.
