Adventures in Missions has taken more than 115,000 people on mission trips around the world. Through various short and long-term programs, Adventures In Missions helps people from all walks of life discover the world, who Jesus is, and what Jesus has called them to: making disciples of all nations (Matthew 28) and being his witnesses to the ends of the earth (Acts 1).
What does Adventures offer youth leaders and participants?
Planned ministry — we coordinate all the ministry for your group with our ministry contacts or international bases in every location we send teams. We believe in fostering a lasting impact anywhere we send a team, therefore we only send teams where we have a strategic ministry partner or long-term base established.
Leadership — your trip will be lead by one to two project leaders, trained by Adventures, to take care of scheduling and logistics, and to serve as your main point of contact with us.
Freedom — your youth leader can be as hands-on or hands-off as they like! Planning worship, teachings, devotions, and free time is open for you to lead or can be passed to our Project Leader.
Logistics — we handle all the details from insurance and rental cars, to meals and supplies. It is all covered! You will simply get your group to the trip destination’s airport.
Debrief — Adventures in Missions values the process. We will give your students the space to talk about and understand their experiences daily. They may see a part of the world they have never seen before, and our leaders will be there to walk alongside your group as they process and respond.
Devotionals — Adventures has created custom devotional journals to help walk you and your group through what they are experiencing on their trip. These devotionals will be mailed out to your prior to your trip.
You want to take your youth to the next level with God. You want changed lives.

Imagine your youth group going to ...
Costa Rica is an adventurer's paradise, known for its stunning beaches and beautiful rainforests. Outside of the tourist destinations, however, are large pockets of poverty and family brokenness throughout the nation. The people of Costa Rica need to remember the unchanging love of Jesus — and that it is still real and relevant to their lives.
While in Costa Rica, you will join our Adventures Costa Rica Base and partner with a local ministry, where you will do:
Children's Ministry: Sharing God's love with children and local youth through games, songs, stories, and sports.
Work Projects: You will help build houses for single moms that are needing a safe place to have their kids while they get jobs and learn skills.
Evangelism: You will meet people and listen as they share their stories. Be an encouragement as you and your team share about Jesus and the life He offers to all people.
Your team will be housed at our base in San Jose. It is dorm-style living with beds for each participant. Bathrooms, showers, and a kitchen are all on site.
God is calling you to journey with Him, to share His love with the nations and establish His Kingdom on earth. Will you join Him in Costa Rica?
Pray for Costa Rica
The Roman Catholic Churchis deeply impacted by charismatic renewal. Many have come to a living, personal faith in Christ, which has strengthened the Catholic Church (higher mass attendance, more indigenous seminarians and priests). Although 73% of the nation is Catholic, this percent declines every year, and most Catholics are quite nominal in their faith. From the charismatic renewal, many left the Catholic Church for evangelical churches; however, large and increasing numbers of “post-evangelicals” have returned to the familiarity and structure of Catholicism. Pray for both charismatics who stayed in the Catholic Church and those who have returned – may their faith bring further renewal to the mainstream of Catholicism.
