“You cannot live in this decade and not join God in what He is doing in Haiti. You just can’t!” Jean Dorlus

Dr. Jean Dorlus is the catalytic leader of the Haiti Movement Leaders’ Summit and chairman of the Haiti Consortium composed of pastors and church leaders from Haiti and the US.

For the majority of the past 100 years missions work in Haiti has been done from the point of view of the sending church. Isn’t it time to come and listen to the receiving church? On this trip you will be able to come and ask some of the following leaders about missions in Haiti, about the church in Haiti, about possibilities in Haiti:

  • Dr. Jean Dorlus
