Jonny

Jonny came to The Nicavangelists at the invitation of his friends who were already troupe members. Jonny is a marvellous chap who loves life and wants more out of it. He comes from Barrio Villa Reconciliación, a rather dangerous part of Managua, and he has hair-raising stories to tell about life on his side of town.

 

Jonny is a talented, sensational teacher and is the Nicavangelists' choreographer. He is an inspiration to the other boys, and always takes the helm when there is a leadership opportunity. Jonny has been on every tour with the Nicavangelists and has played a variety of characters in each street theatre production and is lead Folkdancer. Jonny is the youngest of three children and came to The Nicavangelists with an 8th grade education. It is his desire to one day start a dance studio for poor kids.

Myron

Myron was the very first “next generation” Troupe member to join the Nicavangelists. Myron is from Barrio Loco, which is located near The Nicavangelists’ development centre. His father is an alcoholic and left the family when Myron was very young. Myron then received another father who continued to break the family apart by giving himself to other women. To make matters worse, after a time away Myron's father came home and more domestic violence filled Myron's life.


Myron has played many roles during his time performing in The Nicavangelists’ Street theatre productions, is a folkdancing troupe member and lead Tricker. Myron would like to have a studio to teach kids from the barrio his passion, Tricking.


Jed Brien

Jed, born to Congregational pastors in Sydney's south-eastern suburbs, spent most of his childhood in Sydney and then Canberra (Australia), as his parents were missionaries with Youth With A Mission.

Jed was home-schooled for the most part, and then in 1995 completed a Higher School Certificate through Blacktown College, and it was at this time he started attending Hills Christian Life Center (the Hillsong Church). It was at the Hillsong Church where Jed began to feel a "call" to the full time service of others.

Jed has completed 3 degrees in business and education (Bach. of Commerce, MBA, Masters of Ed.) through the University of Canberra (exchange at the State University of New York), the University of New South Wales and the University of Technology Sydney. Jed has completed a DTS through Youth With A Mission in Sydney, and was sent to work with youth in Latin America through the ACC.   Since then, The Nicavangelists were formed and has been sponsored by Capital on the Edge, Inc., since 2013.

Jed is coordinator of both The Nicavangelists and the Nica Kids Street Tricking School. Jed is also lead vocalist and troupe member with The Nicavangelists.

Shane Seaburg

Shane is married to Jenny, and they have 4 terrific kids. Shane lives and works in Rochester, New York, and is a CPA (Certified Public Accountant). Shane has a remarkable history of leadership.

Shane's family have hosted the Nicavangelists Troupe in their New York home for 3 weeks in 2013 whilst the troupe toured Western New York. Shane has visited Nicaragua - working alongside the Nicavangelists, and he has personally supported this work with his own resources.

Nick has lead multiple productions at The Father's House (one of America's largest churches) and has been on the board of Blackfriars Theatre, a company focussed on producing high-end, quality plays.
