Costa Rica is a full Unity Province of the Moravian Church and a global partner of the Board of World Mission. The Moravian Church in Costa Rica was founded in 1940. Many Moravians in Costa Rica are Creole and Miskitu people who have migrated from neighboring Nicaragua. In fact, the church grew most rapidly in 1980 when many Nicaraguans were fleeing to Costa Rica and elsewhere due to civil war. At present, there are Moravian congregations in three areas as seen on the map above.
