Team Storyteller

Santiago de Compostela is a historic city that is the physical and emotional and spiritual heart of Galicia, an autonomous community within Spain. Galicia is the home of a unique people group with its own language. It is also like much of Europe and Spain, with a deep Catholic history, but a context that is now more post-modern and post-Christian. It is also one of the rainiest cities in Europe. Which helps keep the mountainous region green and beautiful, with beautiful rugged Atlantic coastline.

Santiago has many people working to transform their community; the problem is they are largely doing it alone. This leaves the city without experiencing true community, without someone to tell their stories, and without opportunities to experience the gospel of Jesus. The Team Storyteller is responsible for the key narrative of the team and will need to be able to articulate the transformation of the gospel amongst the lives of people and their work with an authentic approach to linking the material with the spiritual. They will be expected to have a basic understanding of the power of branding and a willingness to grow counter-culturally in that understanding. They will be required to have studied the ways Jesus used storytelling to create wonder above giving answers and they will be expected to develop the art of inquiry among the people they are working with.
