JUNE 2017 UPDATE & REQUEST:

Exciting News from the Nicaragua BIC churches and our Be in Christ Church of Canada

Pastor German Garcia is the president of the Nicaragua BIC Church. For many years the Nicaraguan BIC church has had to rent facilities for larger denominational activities. Over the last few years they have been working toward the fulfillment of the vision to build a national ministry centre close to the capital city of Managua. This facility will provide a place for them to hold their AGM, training events, a Bible school, national youth and women’s conferences, as well as provide a space where the local BIC church can meet. Pastor German and his leadership team have prayerfully and patiently been overseeing the construction. It has been expensive because their location requires following a strict building code designed for earthquake protection. That means a lot of money went into the ground as steel and concrete, making the footings that will support the pillars, walls and roof (Thank you to everyone who donated to this through our “Basic Gifts” Catalogue). All this had to be done before the first block could be laid. The Nicaraguan BIC have been giving sacrificially to this project and have been sending church members to work there days at a time as volunteers.

The need is to finish this project as soon as they can, with the goal of being able to hold their annual meeting there in February 2018. This centre will also provide a great space for the area local church to minister to more people. It is an excellent opportunity for our Canadian BIC churches to partner with our brothers and sisters in Nicaragua.

The Wainfleet BIC and Westheights BIC churches have contributed $74,000 toward this great need this year.

Would you join your sister churches in combining to match what has been given so that together we could raise $150,000 total to help finish this much needed national centre?

    This is the # 1 construction project for the Nicaraguan BIC Church for 2017. I was just there in January and saw how hard our Nicaraguan brothers and sisters are working on this project. The local churches in Nicaragua are sending offerings and volunteer labourers to help with the project. Please consider partnering with them as they aim to get the roof on and the building ready for use before next year. The most expensive part of the project is building materials. Your donation will help make this dream a reality!
