In November our church leaders from Spain and Europe met in Sofia, Bulgaria for the church leaders conference. This event is held every two years. This year's gathering focused on training and encouraging leaders.
On a high-note for Spain, two of our pastors were ordained at the conference. Pictured below, Ángel from Rivas (Madrid) and Carmelo (Fuerteventura, Canary Islands).
Study Abroad students from Greenville College: In November we completed our first Study Abroad program. We pleased to have Brittany, Brooke, Leanna and Michelle with us. We will be meeting in January to discuss the 2016 schedule and expansion of the program. We are looking forward to the continued partnership!

Missions opportunities for you and your church
Prayer Conference & Journey The Free Methodist Church of Spain would like to invite you on a prayer conference and journey for the nation and its people. If you studied Spanish history you learned how Spain has influenced continents and has contributed to the economic and spiritual development of many countries in both hemispheres. Today, it’s a different story... Christian history informs us that Spain never experienced a spiritual reformation. This is why we are inviting you to join us in praying for God’s power to be revealed on this nation!
We are excited about parenting with Women's Ministry International for this historic event. The first three days will be a special conference for women. The remaining seven days we will visit and pray in several cities in southern Spain. Men are also invited for the prayer journey.
