About Us

Who we are/What we do/How we do it

Who we are:

Renate and José are currently working in Costa Rica. They are dedicated to helping children and young people in need, offering them a message of love and salvation. They encourage them to stay in school and stay away from gangs or other destructive and criminal behavior common in their communities. 

What matters to us:
Obey God's call on our lives by sharing His love through His wisdom and power and by proclaiming Christ as the only Savior from sin and the only way to abundant, eternal life (Matthew 28:19).

What we do:

We provide physical and spiritual help to families in extreme poverty. Our project focuses on underprivileged children and youth who are mistreated and abused by their families. We offer a variety of activities for children, such as drama, puppet shows, Bible stories, Bible lessons, games, praise songs with movement, art clubs, vacation Bible schools, youth camps, home visits, child sponsorship, and community work with missionary teams. We meet each child, teen, and family where they are and invest personally in their lives. For children living in desperate situations, the love of Jesus brings hope, joy, and peace, providing a foundation that cannot be shaken.

Our children and youth programs are the cornerstone of our ministry, where youth and children have the opportunity to encounter the love of Jesus for the first time.

How we do it:

Arts and crafts:

are wonderful activities in which children can explore their creativity. These two activities offer different learning opportunities for our children. Working together on craft projects helps them improve their teamwork, communication, and social skills as they have to learn to cooperate and communicate to complete their projects. Doing crafts allows us to spend quality time together and create important memories that often last longer than the craft itself. These activities also give us the opportunity to talk to each other and hear more about their day, their hopes, their stories, and their concerns.

Vacation Bable School, 

Twice a year, during the children's school holidays, we run special programs like vacation Bible schools to connect with the children on a deeper level. These programs are a great opportunity to spend time with them during their free time, keeping them off the streets and away from bad influences while providing a safe and loving environment.

Programs for Children

Our programs for children are targeted at ages 3 to 10 years old. The children have the opportunity to experience worship in an age-appropriate format every week.

​Through the Year

Youth Camp,

We hold a youth camp every year to motivate young people spiritually and provide them with an opportunity to leave their homes and escape environments of emotional suffering.




Our outreach events take place in various locations across Costa Rica with the purpose of supporting other ministries. These events include Bible schools for children and community work with local people.


Testimony. I absolutely loved being partnered with Metro Ministries. I enjoyed being able to interact with the community and spend time with multiple age groups of students and love on them. 



Testimony. My time in Metro was beyond any experience I could ever imagine. The joy that was brought into my life ,not only by the children but by the leaders as well will be something I will never forget. I cannot express how much gratitude I have towards Metro.
