Pioneer Church Planter in Lake Garda Area

Long term
Around Lake Garda

5 years or more

We are looking for people to start new church plants in the area between Montichiari and Trento, especially around Lake Garda. 

ECM currently has church planting ministries in Montichiari (province of Brescia), and Trento (province of Trentino). We are looking for people to start new church plants in the area between Montichiari and Trento, especially around Lake Garda. The current team of ECM missionaries know this area well and have built contacts. Yet, there are many towns with no known evangelical witness. You could either work alone, supported (at a distance of 30-60 km) by ECM missionaries and churches that we're in contact with, or work together with one of the current church planting teams. You would need to raise up prayer for the town you settle in, start to make contacts and then start Bible studies before pioneering a new church plant. It would be possible to be bi-vocational, combining your mission work with a local job if you are able to find employment in the area. This may enable you to make contacts and give validity to your decision to live in this region.

You have experience in a pioneering situation, you are a self-starter and find it easy to build relationships. You are an active member of your church. You speak Italian well or are willing to learn the language. Language learning can be done on arrival, before starting a ministry.
