What To Expect

You will be serving God by doing skilled or unskilled manual labour in the renovation of the ministry centre/hostel. You may be working alone or alongside other people. You will also learn more about the history and current situation of the evangelical church in Spain.

The vision for the building is to host retreats for Spanish churches, community Bible study/church plant, and a hostel where pilgrims walking The Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago) will spend the night. Many of the pilgrims are walking the Camino searching for something. As a result, they are open to spiritual conversations. This strategic ministry will serve the physical needs of the pilgrims as well as provide many opportunities to share the Gospel. Join us in making this vision a reality!
