IBC San Jose, Costa Rica: Resident

Position Seeking: Resident

The International Baptist Church of San Jose, Costa Rica, in partnership with the International Baptist Convention, is offering a one-year residency program. This residency is designed to give a recent college graduate or current seminary student (single or married) an opportunity to gain valuable cross-cultural ministry experience in an English context while living and serving in Central America. The resident would serve on staff at IBC Costa Rica and have responsibility for reaching and discipling the next generation which would include ages 25 and younger.

This residency program provides the opportunity to:

  • give oversight under the direction of our pastoral staff of our Young Adult and Youth & Children’s Ministry over the residency year.
  • receive a stipend of $24,000 for the year, however, the resident will need to raise additional support; recommendation would be approximately $6,000-$12,000 for one year. This would include travel expenses, housing, food, and other miscellaneous expenses.
  • offer possible home stay with church members or own housing as part of potential support.

Ideally, the resident

  • will have a call and desire for full-time ministry in an international context.
  • is conversational in Spanish but not required. 
  • can be either single or married (however, if married, the recommendation for additional support would be higher for the couple due to increased living expenses while living abroad in Costa Rica).
