GO Ministries – Juan & Heather Casa del Valle
Juan and Heather went on their first trip to the Dominican Republic with the Revolution Church team in 2014. While they were there, Juan began to feel the hand of God working on his heart and soon applied for a position with GO Ministries. Having graduated from Murray State University with a degree in International Business and a focus in marketing, he never really thought he was going to use any of that knowledge. But God changed that and now he uses that background learned, plus the passion he has for business, to help communities grow for God’s Kingdom.
Juan is in charge of coordinating all Kingdom Business functions for GO which include developing small businesses to create employment, income, and needed goods/services in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Mongolia. He is also on the team that helps coordinate partnerships (like ours) for the ministry by developing mutually transformational relationships between those partners and the nationals they serve on the island of Hispaniola.
Juan and Heather spend summers guiding North American teams on the Island and developing partnerships with local leaders, and we’ve also been blessed to send several teams in the past. Those teams assist nationals with feeding kids at Nutrition Centers, helping with construction projects (such as community and medical centers), and working with local leaders in their churches to further their ministry needs. Heather also helps by giving tours of GO’s medical clinic and school to the teams on mission.
In the U.S., Juan’s primary focus is on GO’s Mongolian ministries. Streams in the Desert is a part of GO that focuses on rescuing and helping women break the chains of Human Trafficking. Besides showing these women God’s grace and redemptive love to help them repair their lives, they also teach them to become self-sufficient through small business skills such as sewing and jewelry making. Juan’s focus is on building a market for their goods and spreading the message of this work to see this ministry continue to grow.
Revolution Church is proud to partner with Juan and Heather, who are active and vital members of our local worshiping community. Among other things, they lead a Renovation Home Group at Revolution and help serve on our Audio/Video team. Be sure to thank them for their service the next time you see them!
