The Evangelical Methodist Church in Nicaragua (IGLEMEN) was born in 1994, but did not begin to blossom until 2000 when the church began emphasizing evangelism and Pentecostal renewal. With assistance from Global Ministries and the British Methodist Church, Nicaraguan pastors are being trained in Wesleyan Theology to ensure that each of the existing congregations has a Methodist-trained pastor. Global Ministries also supports IGLEMEN’s participation in with the Churches of Christ in Nicaragua (Iglesias de Cristo de Nicaragua) to promote church growth and development in impoverished communities.
