Connect Church has partnered with the C&MA Spain mission field for the next five years. This partnership consists of us praying for them, giving financially to them through the C&MA great commission fund and going to the field to serve. The missionaries in Spain in turn have committed to pray for us and to help us raise the bar of missions at Connect. We have gone twice to the Spain field (2015 and 2016) and plan to go again in 2018.
Here is some information about Spain: Behind the facade of Spain’s imposing cathedrals and vibrant culture lurks a dark spiritual void—less than 1 percent of its population is evangelical. In response to the need, the first C&MA workers entered Spain in 1978, beginning in Barcelona. For many years, the work was difficult and response minimal. As late as 1999, the ministry in Spain consisted of just three small churches.
In 2000, the tide turned remarkably, and quite suddenly, with the arrival of thousands of Latin American immigrants. God began opening new doors to share the gospel and plant churches among these new residents. Despite crippling financial hardships and unemployment in the country today, the Spanish and immigrant congregations in Spain have experienced growth.
Today, the Evangelical Christian and Missionary Alliance of Spain consists of 7 organized churches, 7 unorganized groups, and 1,530 inclusive members.
Amos & Meredith Anderson are missionaries in Albania through the ministry of World Venture. We support their work.
