Maeso, Carlos and Tamara

Carlos (Spanish) and Tamara (British/Sri Lankan) met in Madrid in 2010 through a mutual friend and a mutual love for playing jazz music. They married in 2012, have 1 son (Mali - 2 and a half years old) and served at Mountainview International Church, Madrid (where Tamara was on and off staff between marriage, baby and the like!) mostly in a worship leading/pastoring role until June 2016 when they felt the Lord calling them to return to Carlos' roots in Valencia and so they went!

They are currently interning with Poiema, a new church plant under Communitas, as they discern where the Lord might have them serve in the near future. They are also involved in serving Freedom Libertad, a Valencia-based charity that reaches out to victims of sex slavery in the region by giving immediate support, helping quality of life as well as giving them hope for the future. Carlos is a professional musician and so combines this work with ministry and never ceases to be amazed at the amount of hunger for God within the music industry! Tamara is currently a full-time mum but is currently working on her first solo worship album whenever she can find a spare moment!

Both Carlos and Tamara's passions lie in hospitality, music-making, worship, family, travel, people and good food - not necessarily in that order!

They have a heart to live and love like Jesus wherever they are, with whomever they are and to see His Kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven! If music be the food of love, play on...
