Geography and climate

From the mountains of the north through the central plain to the Mediterranean coast Spain enjoys plentiful agriculture and industry and extensive tourism.

Politics and economics

A world power through exploration and conquest from the 16th Century, Spain’s modern history has been framed by civil war in the 1930s and the resulting rule of General Franco until 1975, when King Juan Carlos was inaugurated as head of State. Regional issues and conflict continue to be prominent. Spain has moved from an isolated economy to an outward looking modern one as a member of the European Union over the past 25 years.

People and society

Spanish culture is rich and flamboyant, full of life. There are plenty of things to enjoy including the people, food, dance, sport and, of course, the sun. The Spanish are a religious people, hospitable and welcoming.

Religion and the church

Many see religion as a tradition steeped in superstition.

The number of evangelical Christians in Spain is very small (around 0.08% of the population). The church needs help, support and training in evangelism, leadership formation and discipleship. Often pastors work alone in small churches. They need encouragement and more people to help with simple outreach and witness and help with organizing activities. Thousands of Latin Americans have migrated to Spain, entering on ancestor visas, and a large percentage of evangelicals in Spain are from Latin America (often 80% in many churches).
The Cascadas study centre in Central Spain has been the main work connected to Latin Link for several years. In addition, Striders have served in student ministries, and both Striders and Steppers have worked with a church in Santander. With several longer-term members having arrived in Spain in recent years, and more STRIDERs expected, a larger Latin Link team is now becoming a reality.

Mission opportunities in Spain

With our commitment to multidirectional mission we are keen to place people who can participate in mission to Spain. The Latin American presence in Spain increasingly influences many communities and almost every evangelical church congregation either through immigration or specifically mission focused placements.

We are looking for people who are willing to get integrated into life and ministry in Spain, to love and serve the people. In addition to the opportunities already mentioned placements can be found in both English & Spanish throughout Spain in media, church related ministry, church planting, ministry to both Spanish and migrant groups through English teaching, ministries working with victims of trafficking, sport and youth ministries. Many churches are involved in social projects which require people with organizational skills and love for the poorest and least advantaged in society. Others from within the European Union with suitable skills may be able find employment or establish retirement as the context for their life and calling to mission in Spain.
