Our Focus Ministries
These are the specific ministries we work through and with in Nicaragua. Our aim is to share the love of Christ through each of these areas of influence by helping to meet physical needs. By doing so, we gain the opportunity to not only impact individuals and families, but to share the gospel, win people to Christ and start the disciple making process in their lives.
Pastor Diomedes Santeliz is a long time friend who lives in the small town of Somotillo, Nicaragua. Through his leadership and vision, the church he’s led for years (Iglesia Bautista Principe de Paz) has either planted or come alongside a total of 32 mission churches which he currently oversees. Most of these churches are in remote, rural areas surrounding Somotillo. Because the pastors of these churches typically receive no monetary support, God has given New Vision a burden to assist these churches and their pastors by developing a special program to help them become what He wants them to be.
The Church Sponsorship Program has two goals…1) to help provide the pastors with financial support so they won’t need to worry about how they are going to feed their families. This will free them up to “feed their flock” and grow the church God has given them responsibility for and 2) to encourage sponsoring churches to actively get involved with their “sister church” in Nicaragua. They do this by sending at least one mission team each year to work alongside the pastor and members of the church they sponsor by doing ministry in their community, VBS for the children, fixing up the church building or numerous other ministry related activities. Doing this not only benefits the church in Nicaragua, but getting their members actively involved in obeying the Great Commission also strengthens the sponsoring church.
