After several months of planning and prayer, the new Mesoamerica Regional Communications team met for the first time in Costa Rica, Mar. 7-9, at the Nazarene Seminary of the Americas.

They had several objectives, including analyzing the regional context of a variety of communication areas and analyzing the current reality for the Communications ministry, among others. They also took time for strategic planning in order to further develop content in audio, video, and other audiovisual elements.

Several members of the global Nazarene Communications team attended the meeting, including Director of Global Communications Cort Miller, Rick Guilfoil and Angel Sigui. They covered topics such as the communications model at the global level, the relationships between church-district-field-region and the correct line of communication between each of the representatives.

There were participants representing the Mesoamerica Central Field from the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Costa Rica and Panama. Participants from Martinique and Guyana represented the Caribbean Field. Regional Communications Coordinator Esteban Murillo organized and directed the meeting. Missionaries who serve in the communications ministry at the regional level also actively participated, including, Ana Hernandez, Gabriel Salazar and Natanael Picavea. They serve in key roles in order to respond quickly in a time of instantaneous, global communication.

The event ended with a hike at the Irazu Volcano National Park, which is more than 3,400 meters high. The goal of the tour was to further strengthen relationships within the team and unite them as a Nazarene Communications family.

“Thank you for your prayers and continued help for the team of people who desire to serve the Lord in a wide and exciting field,” said Mesoamerica Regional Communications Coordinator Esteban Murillo.
