The work in Spain began with Argentinian pastors supported by LCMS Missions in 1999. Today 3 congregations have been established in Madrid, Sevllia and Cartagena. There are 2 LCMS church planting pastors serving alongside 2 ordained Spaniard pastors. Additionally, three other men are currently being prepared as pastors. The IELE is a mission of LCMS and has a FORO partnership circle which meets once a year in Sevilla and once a year in Florida in order to bring the needs of the IELE to potential supporters of the work there.
