Costa Rica

Dr. Chris Dotson, Director

Costa Rica is a Central American country with a population of 4.6 million people. The climate is tropical and the soil is rich, making this an ideal place to grow the countries two major cash crops, pineapples, and coffee.

I am happy to say that crops are not the only thing growing in Costa Rica, God is blessing the gospel witness of Jesus Christ through the ministry of Free Will Baptist Pastor Pablo Fernandez Abarca who partnered with Berea Ministries in 2007 to establish a Free Will Baptist church in his home country that is primarily dominated by the catholic religion. Through hard work and dedication to God's calling, the Free Will Baptist ministry is growing by leaps and bounds with four established churches, ten preachers, and over 350 souls that have come to Christ.

We praise God for the opportunity to be a part of this tremendous work bringing hope of eternal salvation through the finished work of Jesus Christ to a people that had been led astray.
