What We Do

We exist to transform lives by providing Christ-centered, life-changing mission adventures. We believe that following Jesus is Not an Event, but a Life!

Our mission trips are designed to be a cross-cultural adventure of sharing Jesus Christ. We provide your team with training materials to equip them for the trip. From the moment you book a trip with us we concentrate on praying for, equipping, encouraging and empowering your team to do ministry in Costa Rica and in your home town. We emphasize teamwork so that your team will return home stronger than ever before. We help your team discover God's vision for how they can serve the Kingdom of God when they return to their local church and community.

 

 

 Core Values

 

Pura Vida

Pure Life! We didn't coin the phrase, the Ticos (Costa Ricans) did, but we thought it was the perfect name for our Mission and life in Christ. We believe that being a Christian is not just a one-time event; it's a way of life. Jesus calls his followers to be like him and do the things he did. This means living a Christ filled life. We believe that the good news of Jesus Christ is life changing and we trust that everyone who comes to serve will experience pura vida and return home forever changed.

 

Multi-Generational

We were created for community by a God who lives in community (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). This means that everyone we meet has a desire to know and be known, love and be loved, and serve and be served. It's our desire to build authentic and long-lasting relationships with the people we serve.

 

Servant Leadership

Jesus said, "I did not come to be served but to serve" (Mk. 10:45). As followers of Jesus, the ultimate servant, we want to be like Him. Not only were we commanded to serve one another we were commanded to serve Christ himself, by serving the least, the last and the lost.

 

Kingdom Focus

We believe in doing Kingdom work. Jesus talked about the Kingdom of God more than any other topic. We are not here to prop up or put down any particular denomination. We are here to share the Kingdom of God with others. Therefore, we seek to build a multi-denominational ministry that attempts to bring unity to the body of Christ and the Kingdom by serving in it together. In the past 12 years we hosted teams from many different denominations: Baptist, Christian and Missionary Alliance, Episcopalian, Lutheran, United Methodist, Reform and Non-denominational.

 

Mission & Discipleship

We are passionate about reaching the lost for Jesus Christ. We believe that every Christian is called into and is gifted for mission. We believe that the church was created to participate in the mission of God to reach the world with the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. Not only are we committed to evangelism, but we are committed to ongoing discipleship of those who make decisions to drop their nets and follow Jesus.
