Maranatha Christian Mission

Loving, Uniting, and Feeding

Maranatha Christian Mission is an organization focused on training pastors and leaders in Nicaragua. Our goal is to bring the kingdom principles into every sphere of the Nicaraguan society. We are also determined to impact the new generations through inclusive educational strategies focus on children and teenagers. We believe in the transformation and restoration of our people! Love, hope, joy, unity, and purpose are possible through Jesus Christ!


Pastors and leaders receive training on pastoral care, administrative skills and civic responsibilities.


We are committed to help the younger generations to fulfill their God given purpose. One of our core values is to train the children and teenagers with basic skills to help them better face their future and be prepared for new opportunities.


Feeding the needy has become one of our main goals and passion. Nicaragua is a third world country and there are many families suffering from lack of food.

 I felt filled and blessed by the exposed Word of Unity, I am willing to continue this beautiful process of unity. It is the first time in my life as a pastor that I have been invited to an event like this. We received physical food, but spiritual food and the unity and harmony of the Lord's body were more important. In this sector basic grains are very scarce, they are very expensive. I ask you to pray also to finish the construction of the Temple

 I feel very happy and blessed by the material and spiritual bread that I received! It is exciting to feel loved and remembered by our family in Christ from so far away. The word we received was powerful, it filled my heart and I am challenged to continue to grow faithfully in serving the King” 

Pastor Felix Soza

 I feel lulled as when the hen snuggles the chicks- - What a great blessing that my eyes have seen the denominational unity, all together, we had years of not seeing each other today we rejoice"
