Costa Rica 2020: July 6-18


Make connections with and between

believers and churches.

Reach out to and impact the larger community through service, evangelism, and the “hands-on” love of Christ.


“I write to you, dear children, because you know the Father.  I write to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong , and the word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one.” 1 Jn. 2:14




The focus will be on involving the next generation in real-world ministry.  Day outreach ministry will be followed by a mix of evening church gatherings, trainings, and fellowship.

The trip is not limited to an age group, as 1 Jn. 2:14 states, each season of life has its strengths to add to the effort.

This is not a “one and done” trip.  We have invested in the ministry in Costa Rica for over 20 years.  Expect to develop long-term connections and relationships!


Missions is transformational.

“Give and it shall be given unto you...” Come with an attitude of being a blessing, you will leave more blessed than you came.

Find common ground within differences: Experience a culture different from your own.

Worship in a “new way” and encounter God in a fresh way.
