What is Rikapuna?

Rikapuna comes from a tribal word in Bolivia meaning “let’s go”.

Rikapuna is an opportunity to grow in your understanding of God’s work in our world and His passion to see the unreached know Him. 

Experience informative teaching sessions, bonfires, great food and time spent with others in our beautiful rustic setting. 

Our teaching sessions start with His plan and how that has looked throughout history. Is God working today? Are there people groups who haven’t heard the Good News? We’ll discuss all this and how Ethnos fits into the big picture of missions.

Designed for those in grade 9 and up. Families are welcome.

“We thought we knew about missions
when we knew very little.”
