Inquire About The Trip

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Our missionary staff in Costa Rica know that mission teams have a phenomenal effect on the communities they come to serve. Mission teams are able to come alongside local pastors and churches and are used by God to encourage churches to reach their vision and continue the work that they are doing locally. Because of the impact teams have on their ministry in Costa Rica, our missionaries focus much of their energy each summer working with teams arriving from the U.S. and Canada.

Each summer is an exciting, but hectic time for our missionary staff. We always have a need for assistant leaders to help us through the busy summer. If you have strong Spanish skills and a desire to develop your leadership abilities, come spend your summer with us in Costa Rica helping our staff in preparing for and receiving teams. You will have the opportunity to travel throughout the San Jose area becoming familiar with the city and continuing to master the language. In preparing for the teams, you would be responsible for accompanying the missionary staff on site visits and choosing locations for each team, as well as helping with logistics like arranging transportation and lodging. When the team arrives you would be with the team serving as a leader and translator.

Spending a year or two as a Mission Trip Receiver will bless our missionary staff and be an incredible opportunity for you to see God work in the lives of the team members you serve and the people of San Jose.

Other Information


We believe in one God, creator and sustainer of the universe, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for the sins of the world, was raised bodily and exalted to God’s right hand where He makes intercession of His own. He will personally come again.

We believe that God created humankind, male and female, in His own image. However, all creation suffers the consequences of the fall and is under God’s judgment.

We believe that God has ordained marriage and defined it as the covenant relationship between one man and one woman. Therefore we will only recognize marriages between one biological man and one biological woman, and sex (gender) is defined by their sexual identity at birth. Gen. 2:18-25

We believe that because of His love, God sent His Son Jesus Christ, who inaugurated His Kingdom, provided atonement for sin, disarmed the powers and authorities, triumphing over them by the cross, reconciling the world to Himself. He will consummate His Kingdom in righteousness, power, and glory.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, who glorifies Jesus Christ, working in all peoples to bring them to believe and obey Christ. The Spirit dwells in those who believe, equipping and empowering them for lives of holiness and fruitful service.

We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired and authoritative Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.

We believe that all who repent and believe in Christ are born into life eternal, delivered from condemnation, and as His Church, are called to communicate the gospel, proclaim the Kingdom, make disciples of all nations and seek to be instruments of His righteousness, justice, and healing.

We believe in the resurrection of the body, the eternal blessedness of believers in the presence of Christ and the eternal separation of unbelievers from Him.
