Our Mission

Since our fearful arrival in Italy in 1973, God has blessed our ministry in many ways, giving us the unprecedented privilege of getting the Gospel out in this country by means of TV and radio, ministering behind prison bars, serving together with our adult children and their spouses, and seeing a church be born out of nothing grow to be able to have its own building and maturing national leadership.

The church’s next step will be to have a non–missionary pastor and be financially self–sufficient. To God be the glory!
