Our Name

The Spanish word “envía” in English means “send.” Our name was inspired by the story in John 17:18.  As Jesus prays his last prayer to his disciples, he says to the Father, “Just as you sent me, I am sending them”.  The greatest expression of God’s love to us was to send His only son. Just as Jesus was sent, we are sent into the world...so that they may believe and know that they are loved. It is through that love that we can truly experience and witness the ultimate transformation of lives.

Our Philosphy


We believe lasting transformation is maintained at the level of the local church.

Our Philosphy


We believe lasting transformation is maintained at the level of the local church.

Christ designed the church, his bride, to be the salt and light of the world (Matthew 5:13-16). The Church is the hope of the world because it is the embodiment of Christ, through his Spirit, on Earth.  This is why we believe to effectively and eternally address the world’s largest problems – poverty, disease, starvation, lack of education, racism, abuse, lack of faith in Christ – we must do it through the Church.  The task before the Church is massive – it equals the sin and problems of the world.  It can seem overwhelming, but possible.  In order to save the entire world, God sent His son, Jesus Christ.  In order to continue his work, Jesus gave us his Spirit.  It is under that Spirit that the Church is formed.

For that reason we are committed to seeing the mission of the local church (Matthew 28:18-20) carried out to its fullest potential.  At the center of God’s plan for redeeming the world is the church, the living body of Christ. It’s not about an organization, but rather about a living, breathing organism. It’s about people! Due to Christ’s unconditional love, Envía serves all people, regardless of age, gender, race, religion and/or ethnicity. Our three-fold approach to fortifying the mission of the church focuses directly on people and their needs, in and out of the church. Have you ever wondered what would happen if the church was fully equipped to engage the needs in their respective communities? Imagine what would happen if the body of Christ worked as one, regardless of geographical location, language, economic resources, denomination, etc... Imagine!

Our Approach


Our Approach


THE IDEA

In order to see its mission fulfilled, Envía works closely with policy makers, business professionals, gifted individuals, companies, healthcare experts, community leaders and local church leaders to help create a space in which transformation can take place. Envía uses its resources from volunteers, foundations, donors, companies and churches to create a sustainable platform that embraces people and delivers effective and eternal solutions to their lives.

THE MODEL

Given our current board of directors’ experiences and relationships, Envía has chosen to focus its initial efforts and resources in Costa Rica. Our mission statement provides a simple, yet comprehensive outline to our model. We refer to our three-fold approach as the three E’s (see below). The three E’s stem from the premise that all of our projects and initiatives are rooted and routed through local churches.

THE CHURCH

Essentially our focus is the local church... the actual manifestation of our mission may vary from church to church. These three areas are merely guides and are not to be thought of as being mutually exclusive. They are very much intertwined in the growth process of helping a local church fulfill its mission.
