what is w.a.v.e?

W.A.V.E. stands for Willing, Able, Vessels for Evangelism. 2 Corinthians 4:7 says, "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us." It was birthed out of a desire to take the normal "church" youth beyond what a typical weekly youth meeting could do for them, by teaching the participants to be part of a team that was able to minister in different locations and countries. In Costa Rica, we've taken the word 'wave', which is 'ola' in Spanish, and made it into "Obrando Por Las Almas," or "working for the souls." O.L.A. Ministries does a variety of things in Costa Rica... from construction, to Evangelistic Events, and much more. We strive to work alongside the local Evangelical Pastors and churches, to increase the Kingdom of God together.


Our core values are reaching the lost, planting churches/ministries, equipping spiritual leaders and caring for the marginalized.


Our vision is to engage pioneers by calling leaders to courageously and creatively pioneer a spirit-filled socio-economic transformation.


Our mission is pioneering transformation through spiritual transformation, ministry to the marginal, humanitarian relief & development, education & training, and business as mission.
