Reformed Church Planting Movement in Costa Rica
ICRICEN: San José
ICRICEN means Central American Christian Church and is located in San José, the capital of Costa Rica. This congregation of 50-60 people has a vibrant desire to love and serve others in their community and throughout the country, as well as other countries in Central America. Because of this desire and vision for gospel-transformation in Central America, the congregation of ICRICEN is committed to learning and applying the scriptures diligently, training church leadership, and advancing a reformed church planting movement. Currently, ICRICEN has 3 church plants throughout Costa Rica. Please pray for the leaders and members of the ICRICEN community as they seek to serve in leadership training, evangelism, children’s ministry, youth ministry, women’s and men’s ministries, and medical clinics.
