Dominican Republic Missionary Training Center to Close in January 2019


The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced it will close its missionary training center located in the Dominican Republic, effective January 2019. This decision comes as Church leaders continue to seek the best use of resources worldwide according to the needs and demands of each area. Plans for future use of this space are still being determined.

Missionaries who would have attended this center will now be trained at one of the 12 remaining MTCs, including Colombia, England, Mexico and Provo, Utah.
