General Director
Kevin Reilly

Hi my name is Kevin Michael Reilly. My wife Cynthia (Tia) and I are with Grace Global Ministries (GGM). My wife and I have been involved with missions in one way or another since 1992. We are blessed to have raised our four children on the mission fields of South and Central America. My association with The Spanish Language Institute started in 2005- 2009 when I served as the director of Sojourn Academy. As of July 2017 it has been my pleasure to serve as the General Director of the Institute.

My background is in education and theology. I enjoy spending time with family and friends and playing chess. I count it a privilege to help the students of the language Institute to achieve cultural adaptation and advance their development of the Spanish language to further God's kingdom.

In addition to ministering at the Spanish Language Institute, I work with a local church and with Awana Lifeline prison ministries.


Financial Administrator
Luis Diego Bolaños

I am a systems engineer with a master’s degree in Business Administration (emphasis in Marketing), Industrial Engineering and Business Innovation. I also have a doctorate in Christian Leadership. All of these are related to and useful for my position here at the Institute.

I joined the Institute family in 2017. Being able to work at the Institute means to me that the Lord’s plans and hopes for my life are being fulfilled, along with my own personal and family goals. In all my thirty years of work history I’ve served at secular institutions and now, side-by-side with my ministry as Pastor at Comunidad Cristiana La Verdad, for the first time I am able to dedicate all of my time to the Lord.

In my free time I enjoy studying the Word and writing articles for the Facebook page of “Comunidad Cristiana La Verdad”, which has a community of almost 50 thousand people across 50 countries. I am also an amateur runner. I run two races per month, for which I train every day in the early morning hours, during which time I also speak with God. I also enjoy riding my bike in the mountains during the weekends; and playing with my dog Chispa, who was rescued off the streets a few years ago.

My wife Rosi has always given me her full support in everything that I do, whether work related, ministerial, or personal. She is an interior designer who is currently the quality manager at a store that sells formal dresses and gowns. My son, David, is a civil engineer and pilot, and currently single. Cristina, one of my daughters, is a social worker at a non-governmental agency of the UN that helps refugees. My youngest daughter, Daniela, is a graphic designer. She works in her own design studio and part-time at a publicity agency; she is also a youth leader at her church. My mother still treats me as though I were her baby, and my father is in the presence of the Lord.


Guis Leitón

Hi! I'm Guis (sounds like "G's").

I have been at the Institute for many years and have had the priviledge of working in all of the departments. My home church is Comunidad Cristiana El Bosque.

In my spare time, I like to watch sports and work on cross-stitch projects.

My favorite team in Costa Rica is Saprissa, and in the US it's the Broncos.


Gil Obando

I studied Accounting, Finance, and Law in College. I joined the Institute family in February of 2014. The Institute is an instrument to evangelize and glorify the Lord. It is a great blessing to be part of this missionary work. Everything that I do, all my administrative, financial and legal experience, I have placed in the hands of the Lord, so that it may be used as a service to others.

I enjoy spending time with my wife, cooking, running, reading, and playing guitar. I also enjoy hiking up the tallest mountain in Costa Rica, the Chirripó. I am originally from the southwestern coastal area of the country and come from a large family of eight brothers and sisters.
