John and Karry Barnes

Costa Rica

John and Karry began their missionary journey to Costa Rica in 1971. During their first four years in Costa Rica they were able to establish a church in San Sebastian. This church has served as the birth place for 26 additional churches. In1978 the Barnes started the Baptist Bible College and Institute which has helped produce pastors and workers for these churches. Since that time they have been able to open branches of the Bible Institute in the southern part of Costa Rica. God also has miraculously provided a youth camp which has been an exciting tool for evangelism and Christian development. The Barnes’ burden is to plant more churches. There are many areas where this need is urgent.
