How We Serve in Costa Rica


Support the work of the preschool on the Costa Rica Mission Project Campus that reaches out to single working mothers to assist them with low-cost quality childcare.

Church Outreach

We work with local pastors on their initiatives. From helping construct Sunday School classrooms to co-leading a VBC with local volunteers to inviting the local community to an outdoor worship service, be a part of a local church to make a difference.

Light Construction

Occasionally we assist with light construction projects (like painting) on the Costa Rica Mission Project Campus

What to Expect on a Costa Rica Trip

Work & Activities

Costa Rica Mission Projects (CRMP) was founded by North Carolina Conference Missionary Wil Bailey and his wife Yolanda in 2003.

They believe that Christian service comes in many forms and that they have been called to provide opportunities for churches in Costa Rica and churches from other countries to serve one another and explore what it means for us to be part of a body that extends far beyond the walls of our own individual churches.

When you travel to Costa Rica you can expect to help in local churches doing light construction, special programming for children and youth, as well as spending time in the community building relationships. This is an incredible and safe opportunity for families to serve together in an international setting

Travel & Accommodations

Teams fly into San Jose and after serving have an opportunity to extend their time in the beautiful country of Costa Rica.

Teams bunk on the Costa Rica Mission Projects property where they are surrounded by coffee plants and tropical trees.  There are separate buildings for men and women with private bathroom facilities in each building.

Experience delicious homemade Costa Rican food.  A typical breakfast includes toast, eggs, fresh fruit, juice.  A typical lunch or dinner often includes meat (chicken or beef) with rice, beans, and vegetables.
