Making the gospel clear and guiding others in their faith
We believe that the most devastating form of poverty faced by all human beings alike is not economic but spiritual poverty. True peace and hope comes not from having more money, but from knowing Christ and being reconciled with God. We praise the Lord for the fact that many Nicaraguans already possess extraordinary faith, but there is still great need for discipleship and spiritual guidance, especially for young people.
In Proverbs 22:6 it says, “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” By teaching kids in the communities we serve fundamental truths about God from an early age, we give them a solid foundation for the rest of their lives. This is done though games, videos, and fun activities that keep the children engaged as they learn about the One who loved them enough to lay down His own life.
Young Life is an international organization whose mission is to reach young people, offering them authentic friendship, supporting them and sharing with them the life-changing message of the gospel. We partner with Young Life Nicaragua to organize and lead Young Life clubs in the most vulnerable communities in Matagalpa. We also make it possible for more students to attend Young Life camps, where their lives are forever altered.
Personal Development Workshops
In our Personal Development workshops, we apply the Word of God to the struggles and risk factors that teens in the communities face every day. Covering topics such as domestic violence, substance abuse, self-esteem and teen pregnancy, we seek to show young people how to live healthier lives by applying biblical truth.
Mentoring for Parents
Ultimately, parents are better positioned to disciple their children than any church program or ministry. Acknowledging this fact, we seek to equip parents with everything they need in order to create a healthy family environment for their children, where the teachings of the Bible are put into action.
