The name Dar Salaam means House of Peace in Arabic. The Centro Ministerial Dar Salaam is a strategic ministry initiative aimed at reaching the North African immigrant community in the Madrid suburb of Torrejon de Ardoz. This ministry center was started by WorldVenture International Partners in Ministry Lucas and Betzabe Colmenares in close collaboration with Immanuel Baptist Church of Madrid.
The primary objectives of the Dar Salaam center are: 1) to present the gospel to North African immigrants, 2) to start a church for North Africans, and 3) to meet some of the basic needs of North African immigrants living in Torrejon de Ardoz.
Torrejon de Ardoz has a population of 120,000 of which approximately 4,000 are from North Africa. The Colmenares have been ministering among the Jebala Arabs and Rif Berbers of North Africa for the last ten years. They have been working with these people groups in the Madrid suburb now for about three years.
