In Italy, where the roots of Catholicism lay, only very few people have a living relationship with God and know Jesus as Lord and Savior. Do you want to help create a vibrant community of Jesus followers among the people In Pisa? Do you have a desire to reach Italians with the true gospel message? Come and join OM Italia to serve with a local church plant and help in reaching out to Italians.
OM Italia is helping a recently planted church in Pisa. The vision for this church plant is to see a Christian Evangelical church in the heart of Pisa that puts the Gospel at the center of everything that it is and does; that lives the Gospel, through an active commitment to its ‘neighbors’ and a clear and courageous proclamation, to reach people, especially young people and students.
We are looking for people who have a heart for the church, that want to commit themselves to a church plant and to reaching out to locals. Your role will be defined according to your skills, your experience and your gifts (some examples: hosting a Bible study in your house, organizing a musical event in the university, teaching English).
The team of OM Italia is based in Pisa. As well as being part of the church plant you will be part of the OM Italia team and therefore take part in the team activities like team- and prayer meetings and serve within OM Italia’s vision and ministry.
