Ministry Description

Word of Life first began in Spain in 1977 with Rick and Linda Warken as the director of this ministry. Sergio and Nancy Martinez currently direct this work. The ministry is involved in three main aspects: Bible Clubs, Christian Camping, and Evangelistic Campaigns. Every year they have between three or four weeks of camp for teenagers where these teens will hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and then be challenged to serve Him with their lives. Spain uses the musical productions "Born Again To a Living Hope" and the "Children's Show" to present the Gospel to large crowds, and they are also involved in Open Air Evangelism. They have also put together a leadership training curriculum to teach in Universities and Public High Schools. This is a tool for them to be able to get into more secular environments with the hopes of being able to share Christ with these students. They use Biblical principles and examples in their curriculum to get the students thinking about the Bible. Word of Life Spain is also looking at ways to branch off into Equatorial Quinea, one of our Target 2010 countries in West Africa. They are hoping to be able to take the "Children's Show" into this country to be able to reach the young people there.

Country Description

Spain is not only the country of flamenco, bullfighting and fiestas, but also extraordinary art, culture and literature. Art lovers will easily recognize names of the controversial artists like El Greco, Goya, Picasso or Dali. This 505,000 sq. km landscape ranges from deserts to green lands, to many highly developed areas, however, picturesque mountains cover half of the country. Spain covers about 80 percent of the Iberian Peninsula in the far southwestern edge of Europe. Roman Catholicism is still deeply incorporated in many aspects of Spanish Society, even though only about 40 percent of nearly 40 million people are active members of the church. The history of persecution of Spanish Jews, Evangelicals and American Indians caused the church to become associated with tyranny and bigotry. There are estimated to be about 300 active cults in the country.
