Sue Hegarty serves in Costa Rica in partnership with the Baptist Federation and the Pastoral Care for Women ministry. She teaches seminary courses for training pastors with the Costa Rican Baptist Federation in San José, as well as serving as liaison with American Baptist mission teams. Sue also teaches in the leadership development program for the inter-denominational ministry of Pastoral Care for Women. Although the office is in San José, courses are given in locations all around the country. Sue assists this ministry as they update their course contents as well as their publications. This ministry seeks to give Christian hope to women in a male-dominated culture by teaching them of God's love for them, which then empowers them as they seek to reach their potential as women of faith. Previously Sue served for 12 years in Cuba where she taught at the Baptist Theological Seminary in Santiago de Cuba and directed an editorial group responsible for writing and publishing Bible study materials for all age groups for the Eastern Cuba Baptist Convention. Prior to that she worked for five years in Nicaragua as the Christian Education Promoter for the Baptist Convention, where she and a team of national leaders led teacher training workshops and published Sunday School curriculum.
