This April, St. Cloud Christian School is partnering with Boost Mission Trips to offer a school mission trip to Costa Rica! We will be working with a local church in the community of Sarchi. Our focus will be to build relationships and broaden the reach of the church in its community by sharing the gospel and serving the locals. We’ll also be working to build up and encourage young believers in the church as they grow in their faith. 

Some of the ministries we’ll be involved with include service projects, language tutoring, youth ministry, and cultural exchange. The goal of this trip? To help make the Christian church a trusted place where all can find help, support, and the hope of salvation, and to learn as much as we can in the process. 

Before the trip is over, we’ll also take some time to explore Costa Rica as tourists, experiencing some of the best of what this beautiful country has to offer, like volcanoes, mountains, good food, and adventure. We’ll also take some time to debrief our experiences before heading home to carry on the ministry that started in Costa Rica.

One week isn’t a lot of time to solve all the challenges the world faces. But there’s a lot we can do. This trip is intended to be the first visit in what we hope could be a long partnership with the church in Sarchi. So this trip will be a lot of firsts and a lot of exploring what possibilities lie ahead. 

We’ll be serving the people of Costa Rica in some direct practical ways: English tutoring/culture exchange and jumping in some service projects. We’ll also be participating and serving with the youth ministry in the area, seeking to encourage other young believers in their faith. We’ll be building relationships all over the place and sharing the gospel whenever we can. In addition, we’ll be taking time to learn about Costa Rican culture, issues surrounding poverty and how we can help, and growing in our own faith. You’ll see how prayer, intercession, and worship will play a huge role in our ministry and impact.

On this trip you will have the very unique and immersive experience of staying in host homes. You’ll live and eat and fellowship with local Costa Rican families. These are families who belong to the church we are serving and partnering with in Sarchi, and they are excited to partner with you to share the gospel in Costa Rica. Hospitality is a love language to the Costa Ricans, so this experience will be one to remember. You won’t be alone but will be grouped with other SCCS students in these homes. You’ll plan to eat most of your dinners and breakfasts with your host, and we will eat lunches together as a team.

who should
go?

Heading

This is some text inside of a div block.

This trip is for St. Cloud Christian School junior and senior students. Plan for long days, a lot of walking, and living without some of your normal everyday comforts. But this is a trip that can accommodate almost any student with a heart to serve and a desire to experience new things. You don’t have to be a professional evangelist or a flawless Christian. This will be a chance to practice talking about your faith with other people, building new relationships, and gaining some new ministry skills. And do you speak any Spanish? That’s “muy bueno,” but not required.

Fundraising

While fundraising can be a daunting task, and the idea of asking people to help you cover the cost of this trip might be intimidating to you, we believe that there are many people out there who know you and would love the chance to invest into something so worthwhile. It is an amazing experience to see God provide for an opportunity like this through the people in your life. We can help you figure out how to get the word out and show people you are ready to serve God in Costa Rica. We are happy to coach you through the process and hope that you don’t hesitate to take us up on the offer.

safety

Heading

This is some text inside of a div block.

Boost Mission Trips takes the safety and health of each participant seriously. We go to great lengths to ensure that participants remain healthy and safe throughout the trip. Therefore, no participant is allowed to be alone in any city; participants always travel in groups of three or more, and when possible, with a male or a leadership presence in each group. The trip leaders also continuously monitor conditions within the host country both before and during the trip. If a situation arises that threatens the security of the team, either politically or from environmental conditions, the team will be moved to a stable location.

We had an amazing time in Albania and unfortunately this group trip is no longer available. If you're looking for group or individual mission trips, click below to visit our home page.
