Spain – Málaga

long term

Málaga, Spain

Located in southern Spain, Málaga is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Like most of Europe, long acquainted with religious strife, modern Málaga is deeply secular. While most are culturally acquainted with Catholicism, less than 4% of Spaniards consider themselves religious.

What we do in Málaga

Through one-on-one discipling, conferences, retreats, leadership development and Sunday worship services, The Serge Málaga team is helping local church leaders be renewed and empowered by the gospel. The team also serves the community through social events, opportunities to learn English and activities for children, that form a natural bridge from which the local church is able to interact with her neighbors in a meaningful way. We also provide coaching for and facilitating a church plant in downtown Málaga.

Impact

Every summer, the Serge Málaga team hosts an English camp for children.This is a practical act of service for the community that is well received from the church. The camp capacity grows each year, as does the reputation of the church within her neighborhood.

This December, the team is organizing it’s second “Llévalos a Jesus” (Show them Jesus) conference with Sally Lloyd-Jones, author of the New York TIme’s bestseller The Jesus Storybook Bible. This year it will be hosted by a partnering church in Seville.
Presently, the team is planning the first Serge Spain Sonship Retreat for pastors and their families during Easter break. The purpose is to provide much needed refreshment in the gospel for the entire family.

Building the Team

The Serge team in southern Spain has an immediate need for Apprenticeship Staff.

Additionally, the team seeks church planters, disciplers, musicians, mercy coordinators, an administrator, an event planner, and youth workers. Gifted english teachers, who can facilitate classes for adults and children, organize English camps, as well as language exchanges, are needed.
