The Castellanos family is at the core of La Red. Their fate is: Love God, Serve your Neighbor.
Our Christian journey began in 1990. After many years serving in different ministries, in 2006, we founded the first mission of Christian Surfers International organization at the emblematic beach of El Tunco.
Having contact with the surfer community allowed us to learn more about the poverty, illnesses, vulnerability and social exclusion that prevail in the Salvadorean beaches.
To address this, we began carrying out activities with the purpose of spiritual growth and social work in some of the beaches. These activities had and continue to have the support of different people, institutions and churches both from El Salvador as well as other countries such as the Unites States
At the time, we began to host and take care of mission teams from different organizations, churches and universities, especially from the United States; they continue to visit us and to contribute with their talents and resources to our projects.
In March, 2014, thanks to the donation of a plot of land at El Tunco beach, we founded La Red Church. It is a faith community where we preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and share Christian life principles in a contemporary, holistic and integrative way.
God broadened our vision once again and during Christmas 2015, Fundación La Red para el Desarrollo Transformador, FUNRED was lawfully established.
La Red, as we call it, allows us to work in a broad, holistic and transparent way and bring people and institutions around the world to share God’s love.
