Short-term Mission Trips

As part of our commitment to impact the community, we organize short-term mission trips for our students as well as for groups and churches from outside the country who are interested in having such an experience.

Purpose

Our mission trips are designed to be a unique experience in which the participants will have the opportunity for personal growth through communicating the gospel of Jesus and through sharing love in service to others.

Participants will have a cross-cultural experience in which they will learn about life and the testimony of other Christians while serving God together.

Where?

There are many places in Costa Rica where we can meet needs of people in a relevant manner. The focus of our mission trips is to poor areas of San José.

The selection of a place is done in accordance with the interests and project plans of each group.
