Discipleship and Development in Nicaragua

Overlooked kids and youth in Nicaragua don’t receive the tools they need to thrive in their relationship with Christ or their community. Material poverty is a large factor in this—adults who feel overwhelmed with today’s pressures are much less likely to invest in their child’s spiritual, educational, and social future.

One of the biggest obstacles for those in material poverty is not a lack of money—it’s the hopeless belief that you have no power to positively shape your future.

We believe that kids need loving attention and guidance to build a better future.
We believe that individuals are most easily guided while they are still in their youth.
We believe that children and youth have value now because they are loved by God apart from what they can contribute or even how they behave.

One by One equips kids and youth to grow in their relationship with Christ and improve their quality of life.

Through large-group worship and small-group mentorship, kids learn that they are capable, loved, and valuable. Over the last ten years of Bible teaching, prayer, leadership opportunities, tutoring, counseling, and play, we see family relationships grow stronger, and kids connect with Christ, grow in confidence, go further in their education, and grow in confidence.

We believe that part of healthy personhood is having a relationship with God, but it’s not a requirement that we put on kids to be part of our programs. We don’t serve them so that they will believe in God—we serve them because we love God.
