We have served in Costa Rica since the year 2000, and the theme of our ministry is "Raising up the next generation of men and women of God in Costa Rica to touch the world."

In daily life it looks like the following: 
1. PK ministry. We coordinate the national Assembly of God ministry to national Pastors' Kids, as well as the PK network for Latin America. 
2. Training new ministers in the Bible School. I teach in and help administer the national Assemblies of God Bible Institute in Costa Rica, which now has 37 locations and 1,200 students enrolled. 
3. National Youth Network. We serve as advisors to the Costa Rican National Youth Network with the Assemblies of God, and helped develop the Youth Ministry Specialization program that is training hundreds of youth ministers across Latin America. 
4. Latin American Theological Association. Jon teaches in the AG postgraduate educations programs across Latin America and heads up the theological association that helps institutes with evaluation, accreditation, and teacher certification. 
5. Church planting on Cabecar reservation. We are currently supporting the planting of a church on the Cabecar indigenous Bajo Pacuare reservation. Project information below. 

Blessings and thanks for the visit!
