Our mission ultimately as a pastoral training academy in Italy is as far as it depends on us to labor for the growth of faithful local churches throughout the country. This faithfulness is characterized by a local church that habitually holds fast the Word of God and perseveres in the midst of suffering for that resolute commitment to the Word.
May the Lord continue to see fit to use us (ITA) for His work of edifying His Church in Italy, faithful local churches.
The Lord has brought together in Italy such a gifted team of pastor-trainers. I personally continue to be amazed by the depth and conviction of the men surrounding me in the work of ITA. Lucio, Massimo, Matt, Raffaele, and Gianluca are an answer to many prayers and many years of prayer for the Lord to strengthen the ministry of ITA in Italy. On top of this, our close friendship, like-mindedness, and love for one another simply keeps on growing.
Sebastian & Mersia are continuing to study english and Sebastian has started attending the European Biblical Training Center.
