Supporting 6:8 Ministries

Fifteen years ago, a group of ministry partners joined together to create 6:8 Ministries, a non- denominational organization whose mission is “to strengthen and expand God's kingdom here on earth.” The non-profit group operates local ministries and hosts short-term mission experiences in Costa Rica.

Spencer Boulter, 6:8 Ministries President credits his time in South America to opening his eyes to the need in that part of the world.

“We’ve been operating for 15 years and have ongoing ministries in Costa Rica that includes children’s Bible clubs, feeding centers, a ministry for single mother’s where we provide vocational and occupational training, as well as actual work and living conditions for single mothers while they are going through the program,” Boulter said. “We also buy uniforms, backpacks and school supplies for children whose parents don’t have economic resources. Those are our big initiatives.”

Rob Hooper, CEO of Atlantic Logistics, chose the organization to receive this month’s donation through the Atlantic Cares program.

“6:8 Ministries was started by the youth pastor at our church,” Hooper said. “ He felt a burden to assist the people of Costa Rica and reach out to them to help with their spiritual and physical needs. Since then, my kids and I have been down there numerous times to help with the ministries of 6:8. Each time, the people are so warm and friendly and appreciative of the feeding center, Gospel lessons and other programs. I have been on the Board of Directors of the ministry for many years.”

One way to support 6:8 Ministries is through their upcoming fundraiser, Bourbon & BBQ on Saturday, April 27, 5-8 p.m., at 1136 Fruit Cove Road in St. Johns County. The event includes a BBQ dinner, rare bourbon tastings, live music, live and silent auctions, a raffle, and much more. The event is rain or shine. Tickets are $75 each or $650 for a table of ten.

Proceeds from the event will help to fund many different ministry opportunities in Costa Rica including the operation of feeding centers that provide nourishing meals as well as spiritual nourishment through prayer and worship.

“A large part of my heart was dedicated to helping Costa Rica, but I also wanted to give people in the U.S. an opportunity to serve, to broaden their cultural experiences and open their eyes to the ways people outside the U.S. live,” Boulter said, who helps his team prepare about 300 meals a week to feed homeless people.  

“We always feed the children first,” he said.
