David Gutiérrez Reyes

Vision and Mission Trip Coordinator
david.gutierrez@orphanetwork.org

Born in Matagalpa, Nicaragua, David's two bachelor degrees, in Finance and Global Business, have given him opportunities to work for non-profit organizations, independent businesses, and government institutions in Nicaragua. He has focused on the development of tools such as business plans, and business strategies that favor the creation and sustainability of small to medium sized enterprises around the most marginalized sectors in Nicaragua. "Today I strongly believe that God has given me the mission to proclaim His Kingdom and use my talents to support the creation of better opportunities for His children in order to find their way out of poverty. It is a great honor to serve the Lord through ORPHANetwork." David is an active member of Verbo Christian Ministries; he has served the Lord as a musician on the worship team and also with the youth ministries.
