My name is James J Puglisi. I belong to Center Point Church. The church is aligned with missionaries in Santiago, Dominican Republic. To support this mission I will take off a week from work in August 2022.
In 2021 I joined Center Point Church and gave my life to God (Baptism) in September 2021. I have rapidly grown in faith and getting a clearer focus on the purpose of my life. I also got engaged to a beautiful woman (Christen Marie) and in March of 2022 had the blessing of a son (Zacchaeus James). I was fortunate to be able to attend a 3 day men’s retreat in April 2022. During that retreat I learned about the Mission to Dominican Republic.
