Every year, many thousands of people walk the spectacular El Camino "The Way" in Spain. Statistics show that in 2019, there were 350,000 registered pilgrims! You are invited to join this WEC International mission trip for 18-35 year olds to walk and minister along the El Camino.
While walking with the pilgrims for several days and serving them, through hostel ministries, there will be opportunities to meet spiritual seekers and share the Gospel. Additionally, after the ‘Walking El Camino' program, you are invited to serve in other ministries in Spain.
You will be walking as authentic pilgrims and serving in a Christian hostel for a week. The primary roles in the hostel will include cooking, cleaning and being with the pilgrims. Additionally, there may be opportunities to do practical work like gardening or maintenance.
During the third part of the outreach, you will focus on intercession as you walk from Santiago to Fisterra (on the coast). About 20% of pilgrims walk this part of El Camino after reaching Santiago. Fisterra is a ‘new age’ village.
There will be orientation, rest, debrief and tourism days as well. You will be provided with a mentor who will journey with you before, during and after the trip.
