6422-914-Leganes Church Plant
Leganes, a Madrid suburb, has a population of 185,000 but only a small evangelical church presence. The new church plant will be unique in its intentional focus on reaching out to North African immigrants, approximately 7,000 in Leganes.
This is a joint ministry venture of the WorldVenture Spain field and the Iglesia Evangelica Resureccion y Vida church (also known as La Elipa) with which WorldVenture has had a long-running ministry partnership. This project will involve multiplying followers of Christ, demonstrating compassion on the local community level, establishing reproducing churches and equipping leaders. Funds raised will be used for rent, utilities and ministry supplies.
The main objective of this ministry venture is to plant a church in the Madrid suburb of Leganes as part of a larger ministry outreach effort to reach both the local Spanish population and a large North African immigrant population.
The Iglesia Evangelica Alfa y Omega church in Canillas was a joint effort between the La Elipa church and WorldVenture. The Leganes church plant is patterned largely on the success of the church plant in Canillas.
