About the Lorenz Family
Glenn and Wendy, both ordained elders in the Free Methodist Church, were appointed as career missionaries in April 2015. The family moved to Costa Rica in January of 2017. Glenn's responsibilities include working with the Pastoral Formation Team across Central America as well as being the interim pastor of Peniel Free Methodist Church in Alajuela, Costa Rica. Wendy's responsibilities include facilitating a team to build Christian education curriculum for Latin America.
Wendy graduated from Spring Arbor University with a BA in Christian Ministries and Asbury Theological Seminary with a MA in World Missions and Evangelism. Glenn graduated from San Jose State with a BA in Speech Communication and from Asbury Seminary with a MDiv and a DMin. Glenn and Wendy have served churches in California, Michigan, Arizona, and Kansas as well as taught at Central Christian College of Kansas. They have four children ranging in age from 10-16 years old.
We moved to Costa Rica to strategically focus on pastoral training and leadership development in order to help fuel and sustain a biblical movement to reach Latin American for Christ.
Some church leaders have suggested that of all of the Evangelical pastors in Costa Rica, only 30% have had any pastoral training. We want to extend encouragement, develop opportunities and resources to our Latin American brother and sisters who have been called to be pastors and leaders in the local church.
