5k and 1 Mile Fun Run

Join us for a 5k and 1 mile Fun Run at the Fort Macon Trail on June 1st at 8:00am. We are currently looking for corporate and individual sponsors, as well as runners! Our 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run are both meant to be family friendly events! Our events are not officially timed and participants are welcome to run or walk. Pets and children are both welcome! Deadline to register is May 20th. Sponsorships are due by May 6th.

In July we will be returning with a team of youth and adults to Costa Rica. We have been in partnership with missionary Wil Bailey and Costa Rica Mission Projects since 2011. Through our partnership we have worked to build churches, Christian education buildings, parsonages, and more. We have also financially supported CRMP's childcare program, provided food for the children, helped Wil create a mental health counseling program for women and families, provided safe housing for female college students, and worked to spread the gospel alongside the Costa Rica Evangelical Methodist Church.

Active Missionaries

Wil Bailey

Wil Bailey is a North Carolina Conference Missionary.  He received his Master of Divinity degree from Duke University Divinity School in May of 2003 and has been commissioned as a United Methodist Volunteers in Mission Individual Volunteer.  His wife, Yolanda, is an active, life-long member of the Evangelical Methodist Church of Costa Rica. Wil spent the Summer of 2002 back in Costa Rica living with a pastor and his family in San Isidro.  It was over the course of those three-and-a-half months that God showed Wil that there was a ministry for him in Costa Rica.  The week before he left to come back to the States to finish seminary, Wil met with Bishop Fernando Palomo in San Jose, and the Bishop invited him to come to work full-time as a part of the Evangelical Methodist Church of Costa Rica.
An update from Missionary Will Bailey in Costa Rica. We send a team each year to serve at the mission and ministry center and many of our teams have worked on the projects that he is giving us updates on in this video. If you are interested in joining our CRMP team for Summer of 2024 please reach out to Pastor Sarah. Interest meetings and signups will be coming soon!
