G5 Spain


Touch. Engage. Go.

This year we want to love Spain, and we are going to do it through an initiative called G5.

The mission of G5 is simple. We want to provide LU students with the opportunity to wrap their arms around Spain.

This is how we’re going to do it. Touch, engage, go.

Student Group Travel

Spain – LU Serve

LU students have unique opportunities to go travel on LU Send Trips, serve with the strategic partners of LU Serve, and discover key service projects. Much of this will be in Malaga, Spain on the southern coast where many of the key opportunities will be connected to the global refugee crisis happening there and the surrounding region. Currently, over 240,000 refugees and migrants are living in southern Spain with over 1,000,000 residing in the entirety of Spain. Many have never heard the gospel. Refugees come from lands where over 99 percent of the population has no access to a church that preaches the gospel in their language and culture. In the midst of the crisis, God is bringing many displaced peoples to countries where believers can freely share the gospel with them. This is a unique opportunity to minister to some of the least-reached people on earth and they are settling in one of the most beautiful and historic countries in the world. Travel to Spain and get involved!

Dates: 1/4/2019 - 1/13/2019 | Course Options: CSER | Price: $2,850
