Sister Church in Leon, Nicaragua

We established a sister church relationship with Second Baptist Church of Leon Nicaragua in 1992.  They have a primary school in their church building of 132 children.  Each year we raise money for scholarships for students attending this school.  We have more recently augmented this relationship by the advent of e-mail correspondence and visits by delegations.  We visited Nicaragua in 2003, 2010 and 2014. We sponsored 5 members of our Sister Church to visit Minnesota in 2008, 2011 and 2014. We try to make a visit every year and a half.  Our next visit is January of 2016.  These visits are a powerful exchange that deepen our relationships and opens our eyes to different cultures.  Deidre Druk coordinates this ministry team.

If you would like to go on a UBC-sponsored mission trip, you may be eligible for a travel scholarship. You can request a scholarship application from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or at the church office.
