This year we will be heading to Costa Rica for our Spring Break mission trip.  Two years ago we served with a local church in Costa Rica and absolutely fell in love with the people and the community.  The church we served alongside has a passion for their city and is genuinely pursuing opportunities to bring the gospel to many around them.

We will have many opportunities to serve children, families and the elderly in multiple communities in Costa Rica. The goal of our trip is to bring the love of Christ in how we serve and how we share our testimony.  As always, one of our main goals is to encourage the local church that we serve with.  The pastor and his church are main influence of Jesus is this community for the future and as we visit for a week we want to partner with his vision for how to reach the community.

We will be partnering with an amazing mission organization called “Praying Pelican” who we have worked with for the last six years.

This truly is an opportunity that your high school student will never forget.
