“What I like about Granada is the way Granada does tapas. It is unique in that they make going out pretty cheap, but the best things that come from it are the connections you make around the table. The culture is very warm and most people here open to getting together just to spend time together. This opens a lot of doors for ministry and for friendships to forge and strengthen.”

What I like most about Granada is the culture. Whether it’s tapas, una tostada y cafe, or chatting at one of the many parks/plazas, Granada is a city focused on relationships. While it may take a while to get past surface-level relationships with the local community, it is most definitely worth it, or as we say here, ‘vale la pena’!

What I like most about Granada is the rich history of the city. Whether in architecture, food, language, religion, or even people, one can see traces of Roman, Moorish, Jewish, and Christian influence. What remains presently in Granada (along with what has been destroyed) makes up the fabric of this complex narrative between different ethnic, religious, and cultural groups in Spain. As a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural person myself, I’m fascinated by and resonate with parts of Granada’s intricate history. This historical and experiential knowledge continuously informs how I view myself and others within this greater context, and I’m excited to gain a deeper understanding of my both my individual and corporate roles in this story over the next two years.
