To help with the renovation of a building which will become a ministry centre/hostel on The Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago in Spanish), a world renowned pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.
You will be doing practical manual tasks in the renovation of the ministry centre/hostel. We are looking for people who have practical skills in the areas of electricity, plumbing, and masonry as well as general construction skills. We are also looking for people without specific skills who are happy to do general manual labour, cleaning and renovation projects.
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!
