Meet Our Team

We are all about a "hands-on" approach to missions. We have taken over 600 people on Missions trips to Nicaragua. Now, as missionaries living in Nicaragua, we would love to host your group on a Mission Trip to help grow God's Kingdom.

Our mission is to plant churches that plant churches. We're excited for God to use our experience as pastor to teach new national pastors how to manage, love, and grow the new church plant. At the same time, we'd love to show you how your church can get involved in the entire process with a hands-on approach.


Giving your church direct access to church planting in Nicaragua!

Right now our most urgent need is to buy land for the future Epicenter and Estelí Church. We have raised the funds to purchase the property and now we need to raise more funds to build the first building which will serve as a Multi- Purpose Center for all the churches in Northern Nicaragua.
