Spring 2024

Have you ever seen a tidal wave?  I haven’t, but it must be terrifying to see the raw power as the ocean recedes, exposing the bottom, and then rushes in with unimaginable power.  The last two years we feel like the ministries we lead have been in the receding phase of a tidal wave, God has been sucking things away that needed to be pruned. This year we are beginning to see the surge of opportunities for transformation as a new wave rushes in with Holy Spirit power, opening doors for us to plant seeds in communities we have been praying over for years.  


Pavones and Puerto Viejo are both in the southern region of Costa Rica, close to the Panamanian border.  Both are surf destinations and have a large expat population.  In both places, New Age and indigenous belief systems have a strong following.  In both places, the existing evangelical church culture is not inviting to a seeking population.  We were invited to come alongside leaders in both communities to help spark a new movement there. 

Old Friends and People of Peace in Puerto Viejo are ready to start a church.

Will you join us to ride this wave of transformation in the beach communities around the world?

We still have a deficit of $60,000 for our 2024 financial goals.  Here are some of the ways you can help us meet these goals.

 Pray: We are going nowhere without prayer.  Pray for the existing works and for the Holy Spirit to continue to work in people’s hearts where there are still no churches. Pavones, Dominical, Puerto Viejo, Mal Pais, Playa Grande, Quepos. 

Share: Share the vision with others, we are looking for more partners and contacts of people who want to start Surf Churches, if you know people who may be interested or have a beach community close to their heart that doesn’t have a surfer-friendly church please have them get in contact with us.

Give: Consider giving a one-time donation or increasing your monthly giving to help us cover the increased expenses of these new ventures. Click here to give
