Naples: The city of Napoli (Naples) is very diverse; there are tens of thousands of English-speaking immigrants living and working there. There are also over 10,000 U.S. service personnel stationed in Napoli needing a church. Many English-speaking Italians are looking for an English-language church to attend. The people in Napoli are hungry for Jesus, and currently, there is no Evangelical English-speaking church within the city limits.

Speaking Italian is optional since the church is in English, but we encourage you to learn some of the language while you are here. You do not need ministry credentials, but you must agree with our doctrinal positions. Since we want to hand the church over to local leadership eventually, training an Italian resident to be your replacement is an essential part of these positions.

Both church teams and individual workers are needed to host a series of VBS's throughout the city. Teams should include from 6 to 12 volunteers who will lead and teach the VBS classes as well as teach our afternoon English language classes. Teams would come for one or two weeks of ministry.
