We exist to support Christian Ministries in Costa Rica.
We help pastors in the small barrio churches of Costa Rica to develop strong church leaders, to disciple others in the community, and to build the local church into a dependable and reliable resource for the community.
OUR MISSION AND PURPOSE IS TO SUPPORT CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES IN COSTA RICA
Kids at Martina Bustos, Costa Rica in Sunday School
Using the training materials provided by Soporte Pastoral
Our goal is to increase the kingdom of heaven by assisting pastors in the barrios of Costa Rica build their congregations through training, mentoring, educational materials and small financial support. We believe it is better to build 10 churches of 100 than one church of 1,000.
COVID-19 Urgent Request for Donations
With the closing of the schools because of the COVID-19 virus, the meal programs for the children have been interrupted. The government is providing food bags to the kids that attend school, but the preschool kids and those that are not enrolled are not receiving anything.
The people in all the beach communities such as Playas del Coco, Playa Hermosa, Playa Panama and Sardinal have been very generous to the poor and unemployed. Individuals, organizations, and some churches have worked hard to fill the need in these towns; however, this support does not reach the barrios where our pastors are located.
Hope Fellowship Outreach, through each of our supported pastors, is providing small, weekly food bags for those unsupported children. We are moving forward in faith, trusting that you will help us accomplish this important part of our program.
I know there is need all over the world and deciding how to help and who to help is difficult, but the children here in Costa Rica are truly in need. Your tax-deductible gift at this time can change that – even save lives!
Your gift changes lives
Please consider giving $25, $50, $100 or more to help. Our vision is to build the local church into a dependable and reliable resource to the community. This is nothing more than fulfilling Jesus’ special heart for children and His call to reach out ‘to the least of these’.
