Welcome Message from the MTC President


Dear Prospective Missionaries and Parents,

The Spain Missionary Training Center is one of 15 MTCs in operation around the world. The length of your stay at the Spain MTC will be either three weeks or six weeks, depending on whether you will be learning Spanish or whether it is your native language.

During your time at the MTC you will develop increased understanding of and love for the scriptures and the doctrine of Christ. Our training is focused on the scriptures and the inspired volume Preach My Gospel. Through obedience, personal prayer, and scripture study, your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ will be strengthened and your testimony of the restored gospel will be enhanced. As you learn to teach by the Spirit, you will become a mentor and righteous example for other missionaries. You will also forge new and lasting friendships.

The Spain MTC is located in Madrid, Spain, on the temple block, which houses the beautiful Madrid Spain Temple and the multistake center for both Madrid stakes. The Spain MTC was opened in April 1999 and is the training center for missionaries who serve in various countries such as Belgium, Cape Verde, France, Great Britain, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, and Ukraine. The facility has a capacity to serve as many as 72 missionaries.

During the day, you will take part in classwork, study, and other learning activities. Weekly devotionals and firesides motivate and inspire the missionaries. Each week you will have the opportunity to attend the Madrid Spain Temple and proselyte out in the city. You will also participate weekly in a service project. Personal preparation time is allotted each week to read, ponder, and write to family and friends. You will enjoy typical Spanish food in our MTC cafeteria.

Learning to share the gospel in a supportive atmosphere, as you are taught by devoted teachers and staff, will be both rewarding and edifying. Preparing for a fruitful and a fulfilling mission in a warm and spiritual environment will be a unique and exciting experience for you.

We look forward to welcoming you when you arrive. We are committed to making your time at the Spain MTC positive and fulfilling.
