Isaiah 6:8 (NIV)
"Mission for Nicaragua exists to glorify God by helping to enrich the lives of children and their families in Managua, Nicaragua.
We seek to develop relationships in the communities we serve through discipleship and evangelism.
Our ministry focuses on teaching God's Word, sharing God's love, and building God's Kingdom."
In April of 2008 The Imagine Ministry began working as a 501 C3 in Raleigh NC. The faith based organization was started as an opportunity to engage communities for the glory of God by adopting projects and helping people who were working to change lives for Jesus Christ. Shortly after forming The Imagine Ministry, the founding director was called to serve in Nicaragua and a board and ministry strategy were establish and placed into action. By the end of 2008 there were plans to begin raising funds to support a youth outreach ministry in a small, rural community in Nicaragua. Under the leadership of Executive Director Coburn Murray, The Imagine Ministry began building relationships with the members of Los Brasiles, Nicaragua. One year later, in 2009, The Imagine Ministry purchased the property where it was working, and began construction on a feeding center.
The Imagine Ministry growth in Nicaragua expanded to include short-term mission teams from Churches in America. These groups have been instrumental in bringing resources, providing ongoing financial support, and have had a huge impact on the lives of the Nicaraguans in our ministry. In the last three years The Imagine Ministry has helped lead more than 30 short-term mission teams. By facilitating summer mission trips with Churches, Imagine Ministry has solidified support for its projects and building initiatives, as well as been instrumental in creating a discipleship model through missions.
In 2014, Jack and Hilary Snook took one of these mission trips to Nicaragua. It was supposed to be a one-time experience to check off the bucket list. They fell in love with both the people of Nicaragua and the work that was being done through Coburn and the staff at The Imagine Ministry to further the Kingdom of God. They continued to visit and felt the call to dive deeper and deeper into ministry in Nicaragua until eventually were led to start our own non-profit to support both the Imagine Ministry, a bed ministry for community, and other outreach programs such as feeding programs and medical ministry. Mission for Nicaragua, Inc, a 501 C3 in Georgia primarily helps sustain the school. The school is a preschool in the morning, a feeding program, and a safe place for school aged kids to go after school for help, tutoring, discipleship training, and a meal. It is The Imagine Ministry, or “Club Christiano Imagina de Los Brasiles.”
The two entities are hand in hand. Money donated to either non-profit will be used for both sustaining and expanding the ministry. Contact Coburn for ways to help with our expansion projects. Contact Hilary for ways to support children monthly as well as take trips to work with the school and barrio.
