Family trip - Costa Rica - 24F0601CR

Jun 1 2024 - Jun 7 2024

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 (pure life), which embodies an easy-going approach to life.

Enjoy the delicious coffee and slower pace of life here.


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 Ministry: At Horizon Church, their children's ministry is an exciting and vital ministry. It is a launching pad for nurturing the faith of the next generation. Horizon Kids serves as a place of prayer for children, where they hear foundational Bible stories, and where they learn simple Biblical truths. We partner with them by providing team members to help teach in the classrooms on Sundays.

  • Youth Ministry: Jesus’ ministry on earth was spent hanging out with a ragtag team of 12 teens that changed the course of history. At Horizon, they seek to train and equip leaders to follow in Jesus’ footsteps as they are encouraged to walk with the youth in our community. We partner with them by providing team members to help serve in youth groups on Thursday nights.

  • Ministry Base Support: This ministry includes any projects we have on our property. We will rally team members for cleaning, light construction, gardening, yard work, and any other needs we have to keep up our base and create the best living environment possible.

  • Art/Mural Ministries: We have been partnering with the local government to clean up the city. Whether that's recycling on the beach or our various art projects. Some of those projects include painting the light posts in town, painting central park, and murals in INVU park. This is also an opportunity for team members to be in the middle of town ready to share the Gospel and love of Jesus with anyone passing by.

  • Prayer Initiative In Community: This ministry included the gathering of information and prayers from all of the businesses around town. We help by sending team members out into the community to update businesses information while also asking for prayer and opening a door to share the Gospel.

  • Surf Club Family Community Outreach: The Jaco Beach Ocean’s Edge Surf Club is a positive family activity where kids between the ages of 4-10 can learn how to surf, hear a bible based message, and take care of our environment by cleaning the beach. Our goal is to create a bridge to the Church and to have a positive impact on the community. Team members will help through lifeguarding, being a surf instructor, or playing with the kids on the beach.

  • Business School Program: Business as Missions Business School Workshops & Development (BAM Business As Mission) - The purpose of the business school is to provide tools for members of the community to excel and become a light. Experienced and business-minded Christians teach classes to community members who are aspiring and/or current business owners. The classes not only teach skills such as marketing, advertisement, web design, and customer service, but also teach biblical foundations on how to conduct business in a God-honoring and missional way.

  • Ministry Events & Outreach: This ministry includes serving, organizing, childcare, etc. and any other service opportunities to help provide for the community. We like to remain open for the needs of the town. And when a need arises, we will help by sending team members to serve in any way that is needed.

  • Coffee Shop Outreach: This ministry is part of our Business As Missions Program. Team members will be able to work and help out in our coffee shop/virtual workspace serving guests, making coffee, and overall maintaining the atmosphere of the ministry space.

  • Babysitting: This ministry is on a "needed basis" whenever a need arises for babysitting church members' children. This need could be during a conference, event, or other activity when the parent's would need help with watching their children so they can attend. Team members would be with the children during the allotted time playing games, eating, or other activities to keep the kids entertained.

  • Homeless Feeding: This opportunity is in partnership with the local church. It is every Thursday night and they meet in the central park. Team members would help serve food, listen to the sermon, and minister to the locals suffering from homelessness during the time allotted for the feeding.
