This is an opportunity to help the OM team in its church planting efforts in the Canary Islands. Based in the island of Lanzarote you will be helping a small church plant working with children, teens and youth. Use English as a tool to reach out and any other gifts you might have to evangelise and to build the church through sports, art or music. Be ready to be involved in any event the church might have at the time you are there.

You will work alongside OM workers and participate in their team meetings. Expect some Spanish lessons as part of your weekly schedule. Expect to follow a schedule of different ministry activities, get to know different places in order to know the culture, reach people to share the Gospel and take part in special church programmes. For the new ministries projects (football, beach games etc) you will also need to plan meetings with one or more local youths to plan together. You will have one day free per week where you will be able to visit another island, go to the beach, climb mountains, see volcanoes, caves, etc… or just rest.
