Costa Rica Base

Our Mission

Pioneering a brand new Adventures in Missions Gap Year Base.

Our mission is to partner with kingdom-minded ministries, form well-established relationships with current ministries, and advance leadership skills through discipleship with squads or short-term teams who come stay with us.

We focus on the power of Christ and how He wants to work in each of our lives each day. We create a high emphasis on listening to His voice, creating a teachable environment, and prioritizing servant leadership.

Fighting Oppression and Bringing the Gospel

We partner with ministries focused on combating poverty, caring for refugees and widows (Nicaraguans and single mothers), victims of sex-trafficking, and with local children and teens.


 3 ministries we partner with to bring about the Kingdom of God. t


Located in the former impoverished trash dump of Tirrases, La Cometa offers language, arts, cooking, music, and exercise classes to the community. They offer a safe, welcoming area empowered by the community itself. Cometa also partners with a local renovated sports gym, soccer field, skate park, and amphitheater as the community takes action to decrease drug gangs and encourage community jobs and development.


In a neighborhood of San José particularly stricken with poverty, one woman stands above the rest. Her name is Bella Flor and she created the ministry of Las Tablas. With a crazy testimony of facing oppression against drug gangs for almost 21 years, Bella Flor gained respect and security of the community to host programs to feed and teach children in the area. Each week, Racers spend time creating a healthy community, teaching English, playing games, and spreading the love of Jesus. What once started as an expression of love trying to keep children from joining gangs, now serves as a safe place for mothers and children to attend and be in community.


An artistic masterpiece of the Tres Ríos area, Abraham’s project offers a multitude of ministry programs. Here, missionaries often contribute physical labor to creating single-family housing (prioritized for single mothers or families under the poverty line), teaching children the Bible, and creating fun skits/assisting children’s programs for kids to participate in.


Short Term Teams

We believe short-term missions play a big part in the long-term impact. While our main focus is to empower locals in their unique passions and giftings, we've found that short-term teams are a great way to support existing ministries by providing encouragement, service, and manpower for our partners they may have been missing.

Teams are connected with our local ministry partners to extend the reach of the Gospel in Costa Rica, but we also seek to mentor these young men and women so they may continue to make big waves in their love for others wherever God leads.
