What To Expect

You will work alongside OM workers and participate in their team meetings. Expect to follow a weekly schedule of different ministry activities. In July you will be part of the “Way of St. James” (Camino de Santiago) outreach, a hike of around 120km where you will be sharing the gospel with pilgrims from all over the world. Please understand that while you are serving with us, you won't be able to travel around Spain so do not expect holidays. However you will get one day off every week, where you can visit and do any sightseeing around the province of A Coruña. The budget doesn't include any extra money for sightseeing or any transportation outside of A Coruña city.

Participant Profile

Age Range: 18-99

We are looking for people who are teachable, flexible and passionate about sharing the gospel amongst the least reached in Spain. You should be a Jesus follower with a strong desire to share the love and gospel of Jesus Christ with other people, working with the local church. You must be at least 18 years old and in good health. Knowing some Spanish is not essential but it would be really helpful for you to have at least basic Spanish before coming, as many of the activities you will be involved with will be fully in Spanish.
