ASSIST first began its ministry of supporting indigenous pastors in this needy country back in the early 1990’s. The ministry in Nicaragua has gone through periods of growth and change and we currently support 15 local pastors. 

We provide spiritual encouragement to needy people through supporting local pastors so that they can focus more effectively on their own church families and communities. ASSIST is also involved with equipping pastors with biblical training through educational seminars and conferences at the local Bible Institute in the capital city of Managua.

ASSIST finances projects through raising funds to build new churches, schools, and medical clinics, provide ministry equipment and facility upgrades in local churches, as well as meeting the most basic necessities of the community, like providing clean water.

Short term mission trips to Nicaragua provide opportunities for evangelism, street ministry and free eye clinics in remote communities as well.

We are excited to announce, we will have in country ASSIST representatives continuing to support the work we currently do, as well as support a new work with orphaned and vulnerable children families. Please see the news page for updates regarding our new Nicaragua project.

ASSIST PARTNERS - Greg and Kait Isaak - Haven Heart Ministry

Greg and Kait have been travelling to Nicaragua on short term mission teams since the early 2000’s. God got a hold of their hearts, for the great need in this country. They moved their family of 5 + baby on the way in January 2021 and have purchased a ministry property in a small rural community called Nandayosi.  As foster parents for over 5 years, the Isaak’s hearts are heavy for orphaned and vulnerable children. The work they will be doing is two fold.

Working with orphaned and vulnerable children and families to prevent orphans and preserve families by being the hands and feet of Jesus,  in addition to hosting short term mission teams to share with the Western Church, a global responsibility.
