Santiago is located in the region of Galicia, the home of a distinct people, language, and geography that come together to create a unique culture. Santiago is the seat of the regional government, the home to an influential university, and a significant incubator of arts and culture. For centuries, Santiago has been the destination of people walking the Camino de Santiago searching for answers, connection, and hope.
Our work is Integrated Community Transformation in the heart of Santiago. We long to experience the Kingdom of God in our everyday lives, on earth as it is in heaven. We do this by joining others in their work and investing in what God has already created them to do so they can share it with others. Engage in community development alongside our local non-profit where we seek to care well for our neighbor’s mental, physical, and spiritual health. We are sustainably integrating work with community impact so that the body of Christ can live out the way of Jesus alongside others.
The Community Engagement worker will integrate work with worship as they address societal systems through local businesses and individuals affected by those systems. This community development opportunity is for you to have the space to explore the purpose for which you are here in this moment of history as you learn to listen and follow the One who placed you here. In addition, be an integral part of the history and present culture of the expressions of the church and its emerging forms in hope of seeing movements of redemption, reconciliation, and renewal among the people of Santiago.
