Missionary Profile: Ruben and Monica Fernandez

Ruben and Monica Fernandez are global missionaries for the Church of the Nazarene in Costa Rica.

Ruben and Monica are descendants of the first generation Nazarenes in Argentina. Many in their family are church leaders and pastors. Ruben’s older brother, Carlos, is also a missionary with the Church of the Nazarene. At a young age they committed their lives to follow the Lord completely. They consider it a privilege to be sent out to extend God’s Kingdom into other countries.

Prior to their missionary appointment, the Fernandez pastored two churches in Argentina. Then God called them to serve in theological education at the South American Nazarene Seminary in Argentina. Their ministry was blessed as the extension program increased to 800 students and they reopened the boarding school with a group of 30 students.

They were called to go to Costa Rica in 1995. It was difficult, but God’s peace filled them and showed them the way.

Ruben serves as Rector of the Nazarene Seminary of the Americas and Regional Education Coordinator for the MAC Region. Monica is the Regional Assistant for the Lifelong Discipleship Program.

Ruben and Monica have two sons, Juan Manuel and Andres.
