Help Us Equip Italian Church Leaders

Posted By Bill Walsh On February 20, 2013 @ 12:00 PM In Articles of Interest,International | 2 Comments

The percentage of gospel-believing Christians in Italy is very small. But recent developments reveal signs of growth in the church. An interdenominational network of missionaries and indigenous leaders is steadily expanding. Increasing numbers of pastors and church planters are being equipped and sent.

In September, Collin Hansen of The Gospel Coalition and Chris Castaldo of Wheaton College will travel to Italy to teach pastors and church planters in several cities across the country. Hundreds of leaders will be gathering for training and encouragement. You can watch Castaldo discuss the situation in Italy in this video:

In support of this effort, TGC International Outreach [4] is partnering with Alfa & Omega Publishers in Italy to create and give each leader an Italian translation of John Piper's Contending for Our All [5].

TGC International Outreach is engaged in Theological Famine Relief for the Global Church [6]. We create Relief Projects by working with translators, publishers, and printers in order to donate these resources through strategic global missions networks. Please visit the project page [7] to learn more and to consider making a donation to put Contending for Our All into the hands of church leaders across Italy.
