ESEPA is an interdenominational, evangelical Bible college and seminary, founded in 1983 in response to the need to train evangelical, Protestant pastors in Costa Rica. ESEPA is recognized internationally for the training it offers church leaders, Christian educators, and cross-cultural workers. ESEPA currently offers two master’s, three undergraduate, and seven associate degrees. Over two hundred students at ESEPA take classes taught by twenty faculty members and a sizable adjunct faculty. ESEPA is a regional leader in developing new class forms to enable live participation in classes by remote students. The Latin Americans and the non-Latin cross-cultural workers serving at ESEPA have an opportunity to make a deep and lasting impact on the intellectual life and the compelling mission of the Latin American church.
