Welcome to the Sacred Forest

Where our mission is supercharged.

The Sacred Forest (El Bosque Sagrado) is our discipleship haven nestled in the glorious rainforest of Nicaragua. Here, students encounter the beauty of God’s creation, learn about agriculture and nature, go deeper in their relationships with their mentors and peers, and, most importantly, spend intentional time in prayer and with one another.

Thanks to you, we raised money to support even more kids during our recent THRIVE campaign. That means in 2023, we’re seeking to send 180 students on life-changing trips to the Sacred Forest!

This Sacred Season we’re asking YOU to help us sustain and grow the discipleship work that takes place in the Sacred Forest. Are you in?

RECONCILIATION IN THE FOREST

Magaly & Nathalia

Magaly and Nathalia are both part of our pre-leadership program in San Carlos. They also happen to be cousins and neighbors. Unfortunately, before going on their Sacred Forest retreat, they did not have a strong relationship due to family disagreements. It turns out time away in the Sacred Forest is just what they needed.

“I do this because there was a time when someone invested in me and I see the need in these kids. Aside from the economic situation in these places, there’s a huge lack of Jesus. And the thing that arises in my heart, every time I show up is that I know the impact Jesus is having in the lives of these young people. Because I feel the love that Jesus had for those kids.”

— Jose Luis Paniagua, Discipleship Coordinator

“In the Sacred Forest we are developing a deeper form of discipleship, through nature so that the kids can develop a deeper relationship with Jesus. I think God knew SuNica needed a place like the Sacred Forest where kids could retreat. It’s changing the way they see their lives and the way they’re experiencing Jesus on a daily basis.”

— Erick Luna, Discipleship and Sacred Forest Team Leader
