Tamarindo Church Board
The Tamarindo Church Board serves Tamarindo Church by guarding the spiritual health of the church, giving oversight to the church finances, and making key decisions that affect the beliefs, mission, vision and values of our church. Please feel free to read below to get to know the folks who currently serve in this role.
Mike Krepin- Has been with TC from the very beginning and has served in Children’s Church, Mission Trips, Local Mission Projects, Kids Club, Skate ministry outreach to locals, etc. Mike has a genuine love for Christ and a love for the Church… and this has been evident in the many ways he has served over the years.
Jean Mixon- Jean and her husband have been coming to Tamarindo Church since it’s beginnings as well. They have served by organizing and leading Sunday morning teams, organizing outreach events, leading bible studies, printing bulletins, preparing communion… etc, etc. They truly have a love for God’s word, God’s people… and a passion for seeing God’s kingdom advanced. Jean has also been a great source of counsel and wisdom speaking into many situations for our church.
Christa Niven-moved to Tamarindo about a couple of years ago…and she and her family have been plugged into the life and ministry of Tamarindo Church from day one. Christa and her husband have a heart of compassion… evident in the fact that I think they have fostered over 30-40 kids… and are fostering even now. Christ was very involved in her church in the US helping organize home groups and community connection. And now, in addition to her family serving in various places in the church, she runs Journey School… where I see her being the love of Christ on a daily bases with the kids and parents that she loves and serves there.
John Williamson- has been connected with Tamarindo church for over three years now. John spent most of his profession life in the business world, but spent his most recent years as a Marriage and Family Therapist. He, his wife Donna, and his kids originally became involved with Tamarindo Church when their family lived abroad in Costa Rica for ten months. Since that time John has been on four mission trips with TC and he will be joining us again this year on our men’s retreat in September.
Bridget Uhler- has been supporting and serving Tamarindo Church from it’s beginnings. She began bringing mission teams to serve Tamarindo Church and the local community from our first year in 2013 when we hosted a huge Spring Festival outreach here in Tamarindo. Bridget served on the missions board of her church, and she also has been on our mission trips to Nicaragua with Tamarindo Church. Over the years, Bridget and her husband time have continued bringing Teams from their church in California… and this year, they were finally able to make a permanent move to Costa Rica… to be here with us on the ground.
