The Church of God in Spain
Less than 2% of people in Spain knows Christ as their personal Lord and Savior!
The city of Madrid is home to over 6 million people, who primarily claim Roman Catholicism as their religion. Among those, only a small percentage would say they practice their religion.
Partnering to Make a Difference
Within the first year of the church plant, the church through tithes will contribute approximately 9% of the annual budget. In the second year, the church tithes will provide about 20% of the needed budget. By year three, the plan is for the church to contribute almost half of the budget.
Within five years, a second church will be planted in Madrid and the first church will provide leadership and some financial assistance for the second plant.
By 2043, the plan is to have 10 churches planted throughout Spain.
The total cost over three years, is $141,600, with the local church providing about 26% of the budget in total.
Patrick and Jamie Nachtigall, regional coordinators to Europe-Middle East, as well as other 3W team members will be regularly rotating in and out of Madrid to regularly evaluate the project.
Letter from the Regional Coordinators to Europe-Middle East
March 22, 2018
To the Global Strategy Team
This is to certify that we as Regional Coordinators for Europe and the Middle East approve of the Spain project. The goal is for this project to help Alejandro and Carmen De Francisco start the Church of God. This could include costs for registering the Church of God, connecting with the Evangelical Council of Spain and the EME Church of God, purchasing supplies for worship and ministry, and rent for a temporary location if needed. Overall, it is the project to start the Church of God in Spain, beginning in Madrid. Jamie and I, as well as other 3W team members will be regularly rotating in and out of Madrid and can regularly check on the status of the project.
