An International Gathering

In 2018, JOY Ministries participated in an international church service in Donostia. It was led by a number of pastors who have hosted Basque students for many years and have traveled to Basque Country to experience their culture and get to know their families. The international church service was precipitated by the comments pastors kept hearing from their students and parents, “If we could have a church service (in Basque Country) like you have them in the United States, we would come.”

El Camino del Norte Adventure

Join us in 2021 for a 10 day adventure in Basque Country.

The trip will have you walk the Camino for three days and spend three days touring and experiencing the Basque Culture.

Today, the Camino del Norte is the third most popular way to Santiago, according to information gathered by the pilgrim’s office in Santiago. It is a great alternative for first-time pilgrims who strive to get away from the crowd while still benefiting from the well-developed service infrastructure along the way.”

Olabe – live and serve abroad

Until recently, Olabe was a 400 year old abandoned farm on the wild Basque coast. New owners Joseba and Joanna Attard have a clear vision to breathe new life into these ancient stones, converting Olabe and the surrounding land into a vibrant cultural hub – a place to be used for conferences, retreats, camps, courses, rural skills workshops, glamping, creative events and community activities.

Olabe is looking for financial investors to finish the project and support the mission in creating a place where people can “disconnect to reconnect” through using the farm to reconnect with nature and the Creator.
