We weren’t sure this thing was going to happen. Thank God the Pura Vida family responded and fully funded this start. We have been planning this retreat for months and we have been dreaming about it for years. Asking, “How we can begin to minister to the youth more directly in Costa Rica?” We believe this to be an Epic start.
We want to challenge teenagers to live an Epic life for Jesus Christ and help them be accountable. We want to form small groups for encouragement. We want to connect with local pastors and youth pastors that will help these teens connect more fully to the body of Christ.
The options are grim in many neighborhoods: teenage pregnancy, drugs, alcohol, joblessness. But we believe Christ is the answer and with Him nothing is impossible. With Him we can be Epic.
