Spain

Spain

Covenant missionaries are serving in two areas of Spain. In the northwest (La Coruña), missionaries are planting a new church and have helped plant a church in Valencia. They also work with CREED, a resource center, that coordinates the translation, printing, distribution and training on evangelization through Alpha, and discipleship through Freedom in Christ, as well as producing other resources. In southern Spain, (Málaga), missionaries serve with an existing Protestant church with sports ministry, counseling, and pastoral training for Roma leaders. Please pray for these dynamic and developing ministries.

History

Much history has passed since the apostle Paul expressed his plan to take the gospel to Spain (Romans 15:28). Spain has colorful traditions, customs, and languages influenced by Islam, Catholicism, Judaism, and Protestantism. All these religions have played a role in this country’s history. Although historically considered a Catholic country, church attendance has declined dramatically over the years and a very small percentage have a relationship with Christ. About one percent of the Spanish population is evangelical Christian. Covenant missionary work in Spain began in 1996, through a partnership with the Federation of Independent Evangelical Churches of Spain (FIEIDE).
