The Latin America Lead Team is comprised of seven pastors widely scattered over South, Central, and North America. Werner Swart, from South Africa, has the distinction of pastoring the International Baptist Church in Buenos Aires, Argentina – the point furthest south in our region of the IBC. Nathanael Fawcett captains this lead team and pastors Calvary International Church in São Paulo, Brazil. Dave Bollenbacher also serves in Brazil, pastoring Bridges Church in Brasilia.
Continuing our journey north we come to the newest addition to our team – Nate Korpi – who also pastor’s our newest church plant: LifeBridge International Church in Panama City, Panama. Paul Dreessen in San Jose, Costa Rica, is our longest serving member, pastoring International Baptist Church, while Lyle Watson serves just a few hours away in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, pastoring Tamarindo Church. Our member with the most experience of serving on lead teams and also with the most experience in church planting is Dan Maxton who, though with a permanent home in California, is currently serving as interim pastor at International Baptist Church of Budapest, Hungary.
