About Our Ministry

Though young, Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM)—Nicaragua has made significant progress in using outreach programs to connect with people on a personal basis. Locally known as Cristo Para Todas Las Naciones (Christ for all Nations or CPTLN), this ministry center has invested themselves in the Project JOEL ministry, and put their own spin on the Bible Correspondence Courses (BCC).

The majority of the Nicaraguan population is categorized as "youth," making Project JOEL a valuable tool in reaching the public. LHM—Nicaragua staff and volunteers visit schools, and other outreach arenas to talk to young people about life situations. Project JOEL provides Nicaraguan youth with guidance on how to approach choices in life through a biblical perspective

Another ministry in which LHM—Nicaragua has personalized a ministry program is Bible Correspondence Courses (BCC). Many countries use the mail system to provide people with Bible lessons that are completed independently. Instead, LHM—Nicaragua sends volunteers to give interactive lessons to participants. These volunteers are able to answer any questions people have concerning the lessons, and tailor the discussions to the specific needs of BCC students.
