In 1998, Dr. Noé S. Acosta was sent by Dr. James Montgomery Boice from 10th Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia, PA to Colombia to participate in a Roman Catholicism debate. At his return, he reported the lack of pastors’ education. There were no reformed seminaries. Dr. Boice exclaimed, “Many are not heretical, just ignorant.” With his encouragement, Dr. Acosta, with Pastor Richard W. Tyson’s help, founded Gospel to Colombia, now SRL, as the first reformed seminary of its kind.
SRL is a Biblical, Historical, and Confessional seminary equipping indigenous servants in their native language to proclaim the doctrines of Grace in Latin America. To the Glory of God, the specific objective of SRL is to flood Latin America and the USA with an army of thousands of pastors who have been biblically, theologically, academically and spiritually equipped in their own language to proclaim the Biblical Gospel with wisdom and knowledge.
