Our Mission

“516NOW exists to help build holy, prosperous,

sustainable communities in every country of the world”

(starting with Palacagüina, Nicaragua)  

We are inspired and driven by Matthew 5:16 – letting our light shine through good works so people will recognize and glorify their loving heavenly Father. We remove obstacles that prevent people from seeing the saving grace of Jesus Christ and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.  (See also our HISTORY)

We seek to glorify God through good works to improve the quality of life for people in need by:

  • Working together with people in our target communities

  • Ensuring that all projects are sustainable

  • Pointing to God and glorifying Him in all we do

  • Facilitating the involvement of key individuals inside and outside our communities
