The La Romana Christian Church was originally founded by Dominican pastors Benito and Rosa Martinez in the fall of 2002. They began holding services in their living room, but were quickly out of space. Therefore, they began holding the services in the carport of their home.
In September 2003, upon being invited, missionaries Rick and Suzanne York arrived to La Romana to help take the leadership of the LRM Christian Church. Soon after the arrival of the Yorks, the congregation decided it was time to find a larger, more permanent place of worship. After praying for several months, God opened the doors for the new congregation to meet in part of a building called the “Centro Mutualista.” The church began meeting in the rundown auditorium of the Centro Mutualists with promises to remodel and repair. Needless to say, the church gladly repaired the auditorium and had its inaugural service in February 2004.
The LRM Christian Church still resides in the Centro Mutualista where it has continued to make repairs and reach the community.
