About the Site
Alcalá de Henares is a city located 25km northeast from the bustling city center of Madrid, Spain. In a country that is world renowned for its diverse landscapes, architecture, timeless art, food, and so much more, it is no wonder why so many people are drawn to one of the most beautiful and important historic centres of Europe.
In 1978, Spaniards were given religious freedom, yet spiritual apathy is one of the greatest challenges to spreading the Gospel. Today, in a population of almost 46 million, only 1.35% of Spain’s citizens profess to be evangelical. We believe our team can make a great impact through relational outreach and meeting felt needs like teaching English and children’s programs. Our heartbeat lies with the nearly 7 million children of Spain and we believe that He has called us to love Him and his children in this beautiful country!
