For the past 4 years, NEXT’s focus in Costa Rica has been in the southernmost province of Puntarenas. Since 2007, NEXT has served alongside our Church Planting Partners, Carlos and Xinia Rojas to help pastors plant churches in cities around the capitol city of San Jose, situated in the heart of the country, as well as in the northern provinces of Alajuela and Guanacaste.
As native Costa Ricans, Carlos and Xinia are very well connected and respected throughout the country. Through this partnership, NEXT is helping to start and strengthen churches in areas where there is a little to no gospel witness. One of our partnership objectives in these regions is also to help unite the existing evangelical churches in vision and purpose.
