Costa Rica is one of the most stable countries in Central America, economically and politically. Its volcanoes and lush jungles draw tourists from around the world, and its easygoing beach towns are a popular destination for world-class surfing.
One of the only countries without an active military, Costa Rica lives by the motto, pura vida, which embodies an easy-going approach to life.

You will serve with our ministry partners, either near the capital city of San Jose or one of our other partner locations. Here are some ministry activities you could be doing in Costa Rica:
Children’s Ministry: Share God's love with kids and local youth through games, songs, stories, and sports in some of the slums of the capital city and at-risk areas of San Jose.
Work Projects: Build houses for single moms who need a safe place for their kids while they are at work or learning new skills.
Evangelism: Meet people and listen as they share their stories. Plus you'll have the incredible honor to share about Jesus' love and the awesome gift of hope He offers with the people you'll meet. This would take place in parks, communities around our base and prisons.
Food Bank: We want you to get to know first hand how this organization impacts other ministries you will be involved with. Starting to help with the small things will allow you to get a bigger perspective on how you will be impacting lives at other ministries.
During your time serving in Costa Rica, you’ll stay at one of our church partners, either near San Jose or at one of our other ministry sites. Each location is safe and secure. Bedding could be on the church floor or in bunk beds, depending on availability. Participants should bring their own sleeping bag or sheets. Bathrooms and showers are available at each location.
Your team will fly into San Jose, Costa Rica, where we’ll meet you at the airport. We will arrange all of the ground transportation to and from the airport, as well as to and from the ministry sites during the day.
