In August 2007, two of out founders visited North Point Community Church in Atlanta. In a matter of an hour, they left convinced of the importance of bringing that model to Costa Rica, because of the “an experience for those who do not like churches” idea. By December 2008, the Openhouse Project began on a Monday night, featuring video messages from Andy Stanley (Lead Pastor in North Point). In 20010, children environments began. In April 2011, Openhouse received Julio González, his wife Ashley Nowery and their children, to take this organization to a new level of relevance. From their arrival on, the organization took shape, was consolidated, and since then ir has not stopped growing. What started as a small group of “insurgents”, who believed that the Church could and should be different, has become today a deep and growing movement. Thousands of people received the benefits of Openhouse, and every day, its influence and reach, grows even more.
