Portantorchas is located in Costa Rica, a country full of natural beauty with beaches, rain forests, volcanoes and friendly people. With a capacity of 35-45 students, we offer a full-time bilingual Bible School, as well as organizing "short-term mission" opportunities for churches from around the world.
This offers a great opportunity and location for people of all ages and nationalities to grow in their knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord, Savior and Life.
