What is Makarios? 

Makarios is a ministry that serves the people of the Dominican Republic.  Makarios is a Christian school whose vision is to see communities serve Jesus while working to end generational poverty.  Its mission is to Love, Educate and Empower the children and their families so that the Gospel can do its work in transforming lives and improving communities, one child at a time. 

Scott is the Director of Partnerships and Development for Makarios.  Living in the Houston area, he works to develop and sustain long-term partnerships with individuals, corporations, churches, schools and universities to support the work of Makarios.  These partnerships include financial donors, ministry consultations and educational training/resources for the staff and teachers in the Dominican Republic.
