In 1982 the Christian Reformed Church in North America began mission work in the capital city of San José. Through the efforts of Rev. Michael Van Hofwegen and several other missionaries, three congr were established; later, work expanded to the Pacific province of Punta Arenas, where congr were founded in the towns of Esparza and El Roble. Pastoral training is carried out by Instituto Farel, basically using the extension method. A national consistory defines the general objectives and policy for the five congr, while local committees and consistories carry out the church’s ministry.

Note: We did not manage to contact this church. Therefore, we cannot exclude that its address has changed or that the church does not exist any more.
