Serve With Us

Strong Missions is a turn-key Christian organization that brings you safe, affordable and fully customized mission/adventure trips to Costa Rica and Nicaragua, and helps the people therein, especially children and families, gain the basic resources necessary for a healthy life. From registration to the completion of the trip, you will have personal contact with Spanish/English speaking coordinators and guides, all trained by United Methodist VIM Individual Volunteers.

Strong Missions gives you many choices regarding your individual or team trip. We’re logistic experts, and we’re based in Costa Rica, therefore we can accept teams and individuals for most dates, and can do so in some cases with just a few weeks notice. Current mission opportunities can include construction of homes for the poor, public  and special-needs schools, churches, community playgrounds, and from 2016 through 2018, the new permanent home for Strong Missions, making our work more effective and efficient in all of the surrounding central valley. Trip participants are also encouraged to participate in feeding programs for children, VBS activities, and new sports and fine arts programs currently being implemented.

Strong Missions is a fabulous “turn key” missional experience. They offer a well-equipped, professional operation that is sure to meet your ministry’s needs for a safe and affordable mission opportunity. They take the worry out of the mission field logistics so you and your team have the space to experience God at work around you.

Sample Itinerary

Our most popular trip is 9 days and 8 nights with a mix of mission work, cultural exposure, and leisure travel. However, accomodations for any length of trip shorter or longer can be made, from just working with us one day during your already planned vacation, or staying with us to serve for a month or two. We are here to help you serve however you feel called.


The average cost for a 9 day/8 night trip with us for 2015 including building materials, local labor, transportation, lodging, meals, fun trips and exit taxes, was right at $873 per person. The cost lowers slightly with larger teams and rises with smaller teams, and also varies depending upon your choices of fun trips and lodging.
