About Jared and Susan


We believe that quality education is an integral part of helping people improve their lives and communities and fulfill their individual calling.

More specifically, we believe in the power of Christian education to teach students about the love of Jesus and help them apply their Christian faith to all areas of their lives. We are excited to be a part of the work of Nicaragua Christian Academy—to develop students who have the spiritual, moral, and academic skills and beliefs to impact the world for Christ.


Our mission is to support Christian education in Nicaragua through our work with Nicaragua Christian Academy. Susan will be teaching English at Nicaragua Christian Academy Nejapa. Jared’s primary responsibilities will be to attend Spanish language school, begin networking with various ministries in Managua, and support the family in our transition to Nicaragua.
