Since 2009 the youth have been going on short term mission trips to Costa Rica. These trips have been a blessing to both those who attend and the people we are serving. Since 2009 the youth have been to Costa Rica 3 times, most recently in the summer on 2014. Over the years we have built a strong relationship with Christ For the City International and their short term missions director Carlos Mestayer. During our trips to Costa Rica we work very closely with Carlos in order to help support the ongoing ministry that Christ For the City International is doing in Costa Rica.
One of the most important aspects of our short term mission trips to Costa Rica is the relationships we build with the people in Costa Rica. These relationships are built through working alongside locals in ministries that are run by local pastors and missionaries. Relationships are also built by living with host families, which have always been a highlight of the short term trips.
Our next trip to Costa Rica is planned for the summer of 2017. This trip will be a little different than out previous trip in that it will be a church wide mission trip. If you are interested in being a part of this team, please fill an application and hand it back to the church office.
