Ancient Monastery of San Isidoro del Campo

Location: Spain    
Start a Fundraising campaign

"If God one day would have mercy on Sevilla, it would only be right that this monastery of San Isidoro would become a university chiefly dedicated to the study of theology," so wrote Cipriano de Valera (one of two Spanish translators of the Bible) in 1588 while in exile in London. Camino Global's ministry partner in southern Spain, the ABRE Foundation, has been actively investigating exclusive use of this monastery built in 1301. Here is the original site of the Spanish Reformation in Sevilla during the 1540s to 1560s until under threat of discovery by the Spanish Inquisition some of the monks fled to other parts of Europe to translate the Bible into Spanish for mass distribution via smuggling it into Spain.

The ABRE Foundation proposes to completely restore the six buildings on its grounds in phases over a five-year period (2018-2023). Plans include moving the Al Ándalus Theological Seminary into the facilities, creating a missionary training center with language school, hosting a visiting scholars' library program, expanding the evangelism and church planting schools, developing a private Christian school, building in radio/video recording studios, and establishing a music outreach center. Guest and student capacity would increase to 300 people.

Spanish architects specializing in restoration of ancient buildings have researched the site and soon will begin drawing blueprints, searching for underground walls, and preparing a formal proposal to be submitted in September to the owners. They have experience in restoring 43 ancient buildings, including seven other monasteries in other parts of Spain. This one would be dedicated to serving the advancement of the Gospel in Spain and beyond.

Would you please give generously to help restore this historic location and put it back into use for the kingdom and glory of God?
