Italia

 

Italy is one of the most unique and abandoned mission fields on the planet. The average Christian, however, never considers Italy as a place where missions are needed. Today, Italy has very little gospel presence and few Biblical and healthy churches. The church reformation that has reached all the world has yet to arrive in Italy, some 500 years after the reformation!

Countless Italians are growing closer to eternal torment daily, and they don't even know it. We are here to evangelize the lost, preach the Gospel, make disciples of Jesus Christ, and plant Biblical Italian churches. We warmly invite you to be a part of Jesus' church in Italy! Your desire to SERVE and reach the lost can cause us to reach the unreached.

Like Jesus driven to His cross, so we drive ourselves to the singular task of the edification (planting) of Biblical churches in Italy.

Cultural Challenges in Missionary Work: A Reflective Discussion

This video highlight of Missions Incorporated Podcast explores the cultural and physical qualifications or perceptions of missionaries in different contexts, particularly highlighting the contrast between traditional pastoral and apostolic church planting approaches. The speaker discusses the obstacles and misunderstandings that can arise from cultural differences, using thought experiments to illustrate how a missionary's appearance and skills are perceived differently in tribes versus more developed societies like the U.S. or Italy. The focus is also on the strategy of training local leaders for sustainable church growth in missions, emphasizing the need for understanding and meeting biblical qualifications over cultural expectations. Additionally, the video points out the low evangelical presence in Italy and encourages involvement in missions through Practical Missions Cohort, highlighting the importance of adapting to cultural contexts while preserving the core of the gospel message.

Navigating Parenting Challenges on the Mission Field in Italy

In this episode of Missions Incorporated (Missionary Q&A Series), hosted by Jesse Schreck from Practical Missions Cohort, the focus is on addressing questions related to missionary life, specifically parenting challenges faced while on the mission field in Italy. During a furlough in the United States, Jesse shares insights based on questions received from church visits, aiming to educate and edify the body of Christ about missionary work. The main question addressed is the hardest part about parenting in Italy as a missionary. Jesse discusses the isolation from vibrant Christian communities, the lack of close family support like grandparents, and the challenges of homeschooling in an environment without Christian schooling options. He emphasizes the importance of raising children in faith as a God-glorifying task and looks forward to the support and camaraderie from a new missionary family joining their efforts in Italy.

Navigating the Unique Challenges of Evangelical Churches in Italy

This podcast highlight of Missions Incorporated discusses the cultural and practical challenges faced by evangelical churches in Italy, particularly highlighting the small size of congregations, typically 10 to 20 people, and the cultural shock newcomers experience upon their first visit. It contrasts the small, crowded, and seemingly disorganized nature of these gatherings with the traditional Italian expectations of church and social etiquette, including the preference for large, structured church buildings. The clip conveys a sense of how these conditions can make evangelical churches appear cult-like to Italians accustomed to more grandiose religious settings, impacting evangelism efforts. Jesse calls for understanding and support for these small congregations, emphasizing the need for involvement and aid in spreading the gospel throughout Italy. The segment closes with an invitation to engage with the Missions Incorporated podcast and explore ways to contribute to their mission in Italy.

Join PMc

A cohort existing for the single task of edifying (planting) Biblical churches in Italy where they currently don't exist.

 

Most people when they think of missions think of the jungle, tribes, or the amazon. It's possible that you feel called to serve the Lord in missions, but fear you do not have what it takes for 'jungle life'. You probably don't have what it takes! But you may have what it takes for the spiritual jungle of Italy!

At PMc you can serve Jesus among millions of people who have not yet heard the Gospel. It could be devastating to your spiritual health if you go alone to Italy, but we offer a variety of ways for you to SERVE and be a living sacrifice together with us in Jesus' mission!

I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
