David & Samantha Gilkinson
David, Samantha, Maria and Luca Gilkinson are from Lisburn, Northern Ireland and now serving in Tarragona, Spain.
We serve together in the Evangelical Church in Salou, discipling youth and young adults. We also serve in children's ministry and host summer mission teams while partnering with other churches both in Spain and in Northern Ireland.
God gradually expanded our hearts for the people of Spain, calling us here full time after 10 years of short-term mission teams. Through these experiences and the relationships that were made we saw the spiritual need that exists here.
We moved in January 2019, spending 15 months in language learning and cultural adaptation in Castellón, Valencia. After which we moved to Salou, Tarragona in May 2020 where David took up position as Youth Pastor in the church and now serves as Associate Pastor.
