University Congregational Church (Wichita) PartnerTrip

 Registration is closed for this event
Participants will develop relationships with the people of Chacraseca.


Our primary activity will be to grow our relationship with our global neighbors - learning about their culture; experiencing daily life with them; and hearing their struggles, hopes, and dreams. We will also engage with them in working to realize some of their dreams, and support various projects in the community (yet to be determined). Some possibilities for other activities: participate in a story exchange with local women, cooking together, repair local schools, visit micro-enterprises, art projects with children, computer classes for youth and much more! And, of course, there will be time for a bit of sightseeing!

Participants should be in good health, able to walk at least ¼ mile, and must be pre-approved by the trip organizer.


We will spend the nights in modest hotels and at the Casa de Paz retreat house in Chacraseca. Participants will also have the opportunity to spend one night with a family. We will eat “tipico” Nicaraguan food (mostly rice and beans) prepared by the community.

Travelers will be limited to one carry-on suitcase per person for the trip — it’s a chance to see what we can do without!


The cost is $825 per person plus airfare to Managua, Nicaragua. This covers lodging, meals, in-country transportation, interpreter expenses, and trip coordination and leadership. Other personal costs include meals en route to and from Nicaragua, $10 entry visa, souvenirs, and any unscheduled activities/meals the team decides to add. If a minimum number of eight participants is not reached, the cost person may increase. We have limited space for this adventure.
