Community Engagement Worker

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. We engage in community development alongside our local non-profit where we seek to love our neighbor through mental, physical, and spiritual means. We are sustainably integrating business with community impact so that the body of Christ can live out the way of Jesus alongside others.

This community development opportunity is for you to 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 reconciliation and renewal among the people of Santiago. Through your work, you will have the space to explore the purpose for which you are here in this moment of history, how you can celebrate the culture you are in, and begin to discover your place in God’s kingdom.
