We are excited to announce that new life has been budding on the property that once served as the Christian Surfers Costa Rica national base. 

The Jaco Beach Costa Rica Ministry Base has existed since 2003 to support and facilitate local ministries, positive community activities and cross-cultural missions.  

The dream is to be a mobilizing agent with the provision of a well-maintained and fully equipped ministry center, resources and training at minimal or no cost to the ministries and individuals. 

The journey of this dream has had its miraculous moments and growing pains.  Yet, through it all God has shown Himself to be faithful and the support we have recieved from people just like you continues to blow us away.  My heart is full of gratefulness and excitement for the future of the ministry. 

In 2016 was a year marked by astounding growth and movement. Phase one and two of the new construction project has almost been completed which expanded our on-site housing. This has already seeing fruit and we have been blessed to host mission’s groups, visitors and up to interns in our ministry lifestyle training program.   The ministry focused B&B will also be a training ground for students to learn a variety of skills from customer service to small business skills to cooking. The income generated from the school and B&B will be returned to the ministry to help support local and international missions.  

The phase to come will include a new roof, more housing, a Coffee House, Laundromat, an Art Garden offering art classes and a Repurposing Store and more. All of these businesses will be for the purpose of training students and generating missionary sending funds but they serve as an outreach into the town of Jaco Beach.

Our aim is to become debt free and then move forward with the next phase of constuction.   The loan that we have on the property is through a private lender who has been a long time advocate of the ministry base.  Nevertheless, it is time for us to pay the due to him. 

By giving to The Edge through this gofundme link you will be directly paying down our mortgage which needs to be paid in full by July 2017.

Hey Guys, Sorry for not updating you more often! Some exciting news here in Jaco Beach Costa Rica.

First, This week we received two quotes on the roof that will cover the whole hosting area of the property. We are moving forward with this because we received a donor for this particular project.

Second, We have a $10000 donor looking for a match! Anyone interested helping with any portion of this match? See our go fund me page or contact me directly.

Third, we have and ONE MORE MONTH to pay the mortgage. This is great because we haven't raise all the money yet. New mortgage independence date: July 6th! I'm looking forward to the celebration
