Heredia, Costa Rica | Group Mission Trips

In Heredia, located in northern San José, a community center is dedicated to helping citizens who have been forgotten and underserved grow physically, mentally, and spiritually. Backed by the local church, community and business leaders, this group of Christians is living out their faith by investing time identifying and equipping people who are either homeless, or have been prostituted; they also reach out to children and troubled youth.

They provide courses and programs that help people rise above their circumstances such as: computer skills, GED, leadership development, among many others. Many local people are currently involved with projects in their very own community. To date, the center has helped 200 families (1,500 people) in a variety of ways.

Skills

Taking a Group International Mission Trip lets you see the world through God’s eyes. You’ll gain a fresh perspective about the work God does in local communities throughout the world and that new view will make you more aware of the different cultures and misperceptions about where you’re serving. With a deeper insight, you’ll return home transformed. Plus, you’ll grow closer to Jesus through acts of service and get to know him more deeply. We’ve partnered with long-term ministries that are rooted in the countries we serve. As you’re reading this, they are passionately serving and loving their neighbors, working to meet physical and spiritual needs in Jesus’ name. When we arrive, we come alongside their efforts for long-lasting impact. Types of work vary based on location, no special skills are needed!

What We Will Do

With the help of our ministry partners who operate the community center, we’ve identified several key areas where you can help. Here are examples of the types of projects you might be involved with:

  • Work on renovation efforts in one of the area’s poorest neighborhoods, helping widows, single moms, elderly people, and disabled people
  • Help with educational initiatives at the community center
  • Assist with children’s ministry/ help lead Vacation Bible School
  • Do maintenance and upkeep of a local school
  • Help with other ministry opportunities provided by the local school and community center

Our Partners

The center is operated by 10 people, mostly young people with backgrounds in psychology, business administration, college students, and graphic designers who give their time and abilities to the center.
