Project ID: ES0001-65031
Missionary pastors from the LCMS’s sister church body in Argentina brought Luther’s radical ideas to historically Roman Catholic Spain in 2000. In 2015 the LCMS began building upon their solid foundation, sending two North American missionary pastors.
Together they, Spanish pastors, and members ardently seek after the lost and tend to a flock scattered in more than two dozen cities, only a fraction of which have an established congregation or church plant. Being road warriors comes with the territory. God’s gift of technology is also a critical means of Spreading the Gospel, Planting Lutheran Churches, and Showing Mercy: the Spanish church has long employed online worship services, Bible studies, catechesis, and meetings as part of its strategy.
The Lord is multiplying these and other efforts with geographical, numerical, and spiritual growth, and a fledgling US partner base lends critical resources. Developing stewardship among members and partners alike is of particular interest moving forward, as are providing ongoing theological education for current pastors, identifying and forming future pastors, keeping technological capabilities current, and upgrading worship facilities.
