What's Included

Overview

The Multiple Group Project is an opportunity for small teams of 15 or less to experience a Maranatha mission project and train leaders to coordinate a project in the future. Volunteers experienced in construction, the medical field, cooking, children’s ministry and outreach are needed on this trip, and unexperienced volunteers are also welcome to learn new skills! All teams will join together for a large group experience while maintaining the intimacy of their own small group. Small groups may come from schools, churches, families, work groups, or other entities.

Small groups on this project will join together to help build two new classrooms for the Guayabo Primary School in Guayabo, Costa Rica. This large Education and Evangelism Center was constructed by Maranatha in 2001. However they have outgrown their facility with new students and now need more space! Volunteers will help respond to their need by completing two new block buildings on campus. In addition, volunteers will paint the nearby Aguas Claras church.

In addition to construction and painting work, volunteers will also conduct local community outreach such as children’s ministry programs and health education.

Small Group leaders will be able to register on this page once registration is open and a participation fee is finalized. If you are an individual who is joining a small group or would like to join this trip without a group, please review the information packet and contact your group leader or Maranatha for a different registration link.
