Impact Nica is a non-profit ministry that partners with Iglesia Bethania, a Nicaraguan church established 96 years ago, to fulfill The Great Commission. Our goal is poverty alleviation through an integral approach, involving the spiritual and physical side simultaneously. We believe that education and discipleship are the keys to change.
In 2010, the Martin family put their passion for God's people into action by making the biggest decision of their lives, to move to Nicaragua to be missionaries. Cory had a career in furniture design and Stacy had experience in teaching and, after much prayer, the idea of a vocational program came to life. The Summit Church in Kernersville, North Carolina supported their vision wholeheartedly and Impact Nica was born. Once the Martins arrived in Nicaragua in 2012 with their 4 children, and learned more than a dozen words in Spanish, God led them to move to Masatepe, a small farming community in the mountains. In Masatepe, they visited Iglesia Bethania and a unique partnership began. They found a church that had an incredible heart for serving and for missions in their own country. By combining resources and knowledge with Iglesia Bethania, they can make an even greater impact with the people in Nicaragua. The mission of Impact Nica is to fulfill the great commission:
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
