Sorry, but we are no longer accepting applications for this trip.
Cost Rica is a beautiful
country with coastlines of the Caribbean and Pacific that span over 800
miles. The climate is tropical with
rainforests, jungles, mountains and volcanoes and diverse wildlife making it a
popular tourist destination.
The country has a long
history of Christianity, but the need is great for the people of Costa Rica to have a true
personal relationship with Jesus and follow His teachings and values. One effective way to impact this country is
to reach the hearts and minds of its children, and the people who teach the
children, with the gospel message of Jesus.
Today, this is being done very effectively with the Project
Jesus for Children (PJC) ministry in Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua, El
Salvador and Panama.
Partnering with the PJC staff
in Costa Rica, you will be training public teachers how to use a curriculum
called Vital Values with Jesus and The Story of Jesus for Children to teach
students in grades first through sixth at public school locations in Costa
Rica. As you train the teachers, and
they teach their students using the Vital
Values with Jesus curriculum and the children’s version of the JESUS film, many teachers and students
will hear the gospel for the first time and receive Christ in their hearts and
lives. The common language spoken in
Costa Rica is Spanish, but translators will be available if you do not speak
Over the past several years, thousands of students and
hundreds of teachers in public schools have been exposed to the gospel and
received Christ as their Savior through PJC in Central America. Those who have received Christ have come to realize
what it means to personally know Jesus and follow Him.
Please join us in Costa Rica and help us continue this
effective work in 2018, so that many will come to know our Savior. This will have a powerful impact in the lives
of the people in this country.
This is a family-friendly
mission trip for youth aged 14 and above if accompanied by their
parent(s) or grandparent(s).
