Join the 2021 EXITE team as we serve in Nicaragua!

JULY 12-25


Serving under the leadership of Milo and Raquel Seravalli while partnering together with the Arraigados Church.



This summer a select group of high school and college students will travel to Nicaragua to learn how to share the love of Christ with the children and youth in Nagarote.

“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Romans 10:15)


A trip like this can be a life-changer as you see firsthand what God is doing in the largest country in Central America. Something exciting happens when we step out of our comfort zone with other students to be the “hands and feet of Jesus.” EXITE is about spiritual growth as we put our faith into action in practical ways serving our Nicaraguan brothers and sisters in Christ. Experience the joy of seeing how God can work through you in new and powerful ways as you share His love with people in need of a Savior in a culture and environment very different than your own. You will learn about their culture and observe how our Nicaraguan believers are living out their faith in their own community, as well as taking the Gospel of Grace into neighboring towns.

At the EXITE boot camp held on the campus of Grace Christian University, you will learn about yourself and how to work together as a team with other high school students.  You will also prepare for your ministry in Nicaragua, including outreach events for youth and children,  giving your testimony in a crosscultural setting, and sharing the gospel in various venues.  Your team will be involved in the ongoing construction project of the ministry center in Nagarote, as well as a community service project in the town of Nagarote.
