Welcome to Portantorchas!


Our Bilingual Bible School Program is a one-year school designed for students to experience the life of Christ through the study of the Word of God in a community environment while ministering to those in need in the community. Take a look through our Bible School information to find out more!

The goals of our school include:

  • Building a strong Biblical foundation in the life of each student through Bible classes, personal Bible reading, and guided Bible study.
  • Exposing students to cross-cultural ministries by working in the local community every week 
  • Planning and participating in a one-week mission trip.
  • Starting or building upon second language acquisition of Spanish.
  • Learning to live in community and serving one another through shared responsibilities and activities.
  • Equipping students to be leaders and disciple-makers as they return home to family, work, college, and for the rest of their lives.


Our campus is located in the suburbs of San José, Costa Rica, in Central America. We are one of more than 25 schools under the umbrella of   Torchbearers of the Capernwray Missionary Fellowship  that was founded in England in 1947.
