This is an opportunity to help the OM team in the different activities they plan to have during those months including taking part in the Camino de Santiago outreach.

Based in the city of A Coruña on the north west coast of Spain, you will be taking part in English conversation clubs and any workshops we might have during your time here. You will be attending a local Baptist church in Spanish.  You will be involved with the church youth group and any other events the church might have during your time here.

You will work alongside OM workers and participate in their team meetings.  Expect to follow a weekly schedule of different ministry activities.  In July you will be part of the “Way of St. James” (Camino de Santiago) outreach, a hike of around 120km where you will be sharing the gospel with pilgrims from all over the world.  Please understand that while you are serving with us, you won't be able to travel around Spain so do not expect holidays.  However, you will get one day off every week, where you can visit and do any sightseeing around the province of A Coruña.  The budget doesn't include any extra money for sightseeing or any transportation outside of A Coruña city.

Participant Profile

We are looking for people who are teachable, flexible and passionate about sharing the gospel amongst the least reached in Spain.  You should be a Jesus follower with a strong desire to share the love and gospel of Jesus Christ with other people, working with the local church.  You must be at least 18 years old and in good health.  Knowing some Spanish is not essential but it would be really helpful for you to have at least basic Spanish before coming, as many of the activities you will be involved with will be fully in Spanish.


You will be sharing an OM flat with other participants or OM workers.  You may have to share a bedroom. 


You will need to take turns with other team members in cooking meals.  As you will mainly be cooking meals at home, all dietary requirements can be catered for.  Food will be bought from local shops and supermarkets. 


You must arrange your own travel to and from either A Coruña airport (LCG), A Coruña Bus station or A Coruña Train Station. 

Please do not book flights unless you have received an official acceptance email from the Short Term outreach team.


You must be in good health. We need to know about any health issues, dietary requirements, food allergies or intolerances in advance. 


British citizens can travel to countries in the Schengen area for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa.
