Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ. –Dietrich Bonhoeffer
We have a dream that rural churches and pastors will grow and develop powerful, loving flocks that play a key role in bringing health, education, and the light of Christ to the villages we serve in. But the reality is, that in North Nicaragua pastors and churches are rarely self-sustaining and are vulnerable to false gospels and theological confusion. This stems from a lack of education, and often results in low levels of discipleship.
Most church leaders in the impoverished Northern villages never finished elementary school and rely on agricultural crops to feed their families while using story telling to communicate bible principals and the gospel. They also deal with continuous water and weather conditions that interrupt church activities and development.
Corner of Love’s Trinity Connection Church & Discipleship Development Program is led by Nelson Amador and helps these churches by offering:
- Financial support for church planting and specific projects
- Basic education (reading, writing, math) tutoring to adult pastors
- Simple, relevant bible study, taught by native Nicaraguan Christians at individual academic levels
- Training in Peacemaking principles and Conflict Management
- Biblical and educational resources, such as bibles, tracts, and Christian books
- Practical help to assist with sustainability and membership growth
- Workshops and Guest Speakers on relevant topics and approaches
Presently, Corner of Love works with 62 churches in 54 villages surrounding San Ramón in the Matagalpa Region. These congregations include Evangelical Churches, Church-Plants, Worship Groups (home Churches), and some Catholic Chapels. Teams who serve with Corner of Love often carry out clinics and services in Trinity Connection churches or facilities. Pastors or church leaders who are part of this program may also coordinate on-the-ground ticket distribution.
Around The World
Help participants accept their assignment to be disciples of Christ
Our ministry does not only focus on Nicaragua. We believe God has entrusted us with the assignment to help every participant accept their assignment to be an active worker for Christ’s kingdom. Our goal is that every team member would experience the life-changing effects of international mission, which often change the way one views their time, resources, and ability to be the hands and feet of Jesus throughout the world.
We humbly invite you to come on a trip, bring or send a team, or help in your area. Your life will never be the same!
