Children & Youth Ministry Discipler

Do you want to disciple and impact the lives of children and youth that will have the potential to change a whole country for Christ? Iglesia Union Church is a bilingual church that touches the lives of doctors, lawyers, and presidents as well as the underprivileged, poor and indigenous peoples of Costa Rica. Situated in a quickly changing socialistic and ever more secular and liberal culture, Union Church is working to maintain the truth of God’s Word and hope in the gospel to people who are constantly being taught the opposite.

As the ministry opportunities are growing so are the needs for people to come alongside us to enable us to do more intentional discipleship to reach into not just individual lives but whole families and the future leaders of the country.

Goers in this position will be part of a wide range of activities, from helping teach and run our children’s and youth ministries which open the door to impact parents and teach them how to disciple, to being part of church-wide events that create community in a culture historically dependent on their own family.
