The Basics | Start Here
Thank you for your thoughtful and prayerful consideration to join the Hope for Nicaragua Mission Team! I look forward to serving with you in His mission field as we bring the love and hope of Jesus Christ to the beautiful people of Central America.
Very Important! A valid passport is required and must be in your possession on the days of travel. Passports must be valid for 6 (six) months beyond our departure date. Check now and if you do not have a valid passport, renew or apply for a new one as soon as possible. Follow this link to apply or renew.
Complete the Mission Service Application. We have moved to online applications through “Managed Missions”. To get started, email Robin (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Eric (email@example.com). We will enter your name and email address into Managed Missions and you will receive a link to the online application which can also be used for future years.
Minors. A notarized permission form will be required for minors under 18 to leave the United States when both parents are not traveling with the minor (see link below). Be sure to have this form readily available during times of travel.
Mission Fee. The team fee this year is $2,250 and we ask for a $100 non-refundable deposit at the time of application. Please send and make all checks payable to:
