The Garcías’ Story
E & K have a combined 30 years of cross-cultural ministry experience. They have 3 daughters and live in a culturally diverse area with +120 nationalities. They love using their home for hospitality and using their gifts of teaching, discipleship, and evangelism to build up the church. God has granted them experience in church planting, church replanting, discipleship, teaching, evangelism, serving as Team Leaders, multiple language acquisition, and they are now applying their seminary studies to ministry.
K is studying a Masters in Counseling at Westminster Theological Seminary and serves on a team that cares for, coaches, and provides crisis-management for 160+ workers in unreached regions of the world. She builds relationships by teaching Spanish classes to immigrant women in her neighborhood and also serves as the Secretary of the Avant Spain religious legal entity. E is studying an MDiv at Southern Seminary and pastors a new church that was born during the pandemic. The church currently meets in a park. E also teaches in a residential training program for Spanish-speaking workers, run by their team, preparing workers to serve in unreached areas.
Together, the Garcías are the Ministry Directors for the Iberian Peninsula and help care for and provide leadership for nearly forty workers seeking to plant churches among the least reached and unreached.Please email the Garcías to learn more about how to partner with them.
The country of Spain is a little smaller than the state of Texas. Spain is a challenging place to share the gospel. It is a post-Catholic country that is overwhelmingly secular. Of 8,112 municipalities, only around 650 have an evangelical church. The Garcías live in a strategic location to be able to build relationships and share the Gospel to build up the church in their local context and also to catalyze church planting movements among unreached people groups.
