Spain, on Europe’s Iberian Peninsula, is really 17 autonomous regions, each with its own geography and culture. Spain experienced a prolonged recession in the wake of the global financial crisis. Economic growth resumed briefly in late 2013, albeit only modestly, as credit contraction in the private sector, fiscal austerity, and high unemployment continued to weigh on domestic consumption and investment. Exports, however, have been resilient throughout the economic downturn and helped to bring Spain's current account into surplus in 2013 for the first time since 1986. The unemployment rate rose from a low of about 8% in 2007 to more than 26% in 2013, straining Spain's public finances as spending on social benefits increased while tax revenues fell.
I helped plant the first Vineyard church in Spain back in 1992. My family and I lived in Barcelona for about 9 years and loved working with Spaniards around the country. We came back to the States in 2001 and began to direct the partnership in 2001 or 2002. We are currently church planting in the town where we live - Mountain View, CA.
