What is your ministry?
I am the coordinator of religious education for the public schools of Spain. Because Spain allows religious education to be taught in schools, we are able to base our curriculum on the Bible. Currently, we are serving 900 schools in Spain and teaching about 20,000 students.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
Being aware of the bigger pictures is always a source of encouragement and of wisdom. Networking and biblical training in Europe are necessary given the special hardships and difficulties we face. I am excited to meet other people who may be working in similar capacities, to learn and fellowship with them.
What is your leadership role?
I was previously the coordinator of Evangelical Religious Education at FEREDE, which allowed me to represent our department before the Spanish government and provide theological and pedagogical training to future religious education teachers. While living in the United States, I was a university teacher for 3 years and was involved in mission trips with college students. I also served with World Vision for 3 years in Spain.
