This country is famous for its fertile land, frequent rainfall, its well-educated population and its location. One quarter of Costa Rica’s land is dedicated to national forests, often adjoining picturesque beaches, which has made the country a popular destination for affluent retirees and tourists.

Costa Rica’s political system has steadily developed, maintaining democratic institutions and an orderly, constitutional scheme for government succession. The country has avoided military involvement in political affairs because it has no armed forces.

What we do:

  • LIVE Talamanca: The indigenous communities of Costa Rica live in extremely¬†remote areas, the majority in the mountains of Talamanca. OM Costa Rica has a ministry in this area called, ‚ÄúLive Talamanca,‚ÄĚ which strives to bring tangible¬†transformation by meeting social, developmental, and spiritual needs¬†through long-term discipleship.
  • Pearl Process: This ministry¬†strives to reflect Jesus, and holistically transform the lives of women at risk, rising up out of¬†poverty, oppression, and exploitation through discipleship, mentoring, workshops,¬†and self¬†help groups.¬†
  • Mobilization:¬†This ministry seeks to spark a passion in the local church for¬†missions throughout¬†the world, through church visits, presentations,¬†mission events, and outreaches. OM Costa Rica connects individuals with a heart to serve God with local, national, and global¬†opportunities to spread the gospel.¬†¬†¬†
