Lives forever...


you ready...

Our first 9 Months In Estelí

The Launch Process Has Begun!

  • Feeding Centers in each church giving nourishment to hundreds of children weekly.
  • Free Medical Clinic / Hospital in La Esmeralda serving thousands annually.
  • NICAconnect - giving your church direct access to church planting in Nicaragua!

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.
