The ministry

We did our Discipleship Training School with Youth With A Mission in 1995 and 1996. We both felt a calling to missions full time and knew that after completing this school we would stay on with Youth With A Mission. As a family we have followed the Lord wherever He has led us and in 1999 He placed it on our hearts to start a new YWAM work in the capital of Costa Rica, San Jose. This dream of God didn't become a reality until July of 2004. Between 1999 and 2004 God lead us to get training and serve at different YWAM ministries in Latin America, Africa and the Carribbean. We were able to complete a Leadership Training School which gave us some more foundations to be able to start this ministry as well as a Bible School for the Nations in Nicaragua where we served from July 2002 until August 2003.

Since the start of the ministry in San Jose, Costa Rica in July 2004, God has been amazing in pouring out, not only people whom to co-work with, but also resources and ministry opportunities in the capital as well as within the nation. We started different training schools among which:

Discipleship Training School
Extreme Adventure and Backpackers DTS
Foundations in Community Development School
The School of Worship
The school for Children at Risk
The Bible Core Course

Also ministries are coming forth from that which God started in 2004. We are now ministering to the homeless in San Jose a few times a week. A childrens ministry called "Metro" that reaches the children of different areas of the city. Scott and Leslie Freeman have moved to the beach town of Jaco to minister to the children in a poor community called "the River" as well as to the prostitutes by sharing the heart of God with them.

We need your prayers as God is changing lives and showing His love to His children in Costa Rica. For more information please visit the website of our ministry, by pressing on the following link:

Our vision

God put a vision on our hearts to reach the young generation by teaching them who God is and that they can get to know Him personally and have a relationship with Jesus. We long for this generation to know Jesus and make Him known. So we teach and equip through training schools to see lives transformed and in turn see these people go out and transform their society!!
