Turin, Italy

Turin is the capital city of Piedmont (one of Italy’s 20 regions) which has about 913,000 people. This city is quite popular because of the so-called “holy Shroud,” a linen cloth kept in the Cathedral of Turin, on which the image of a man bearing signs of tortures, abuses and possible crucifixion is visible. In it, according to Roman Catholic tradition, it was wrapped the body of Jesus when he died.

Turin is not only a Roman Catholic city, but in it there are also a great number of Muslims as well as of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

In this city there are about 54 churches. It means that with an average of 80 people per church there are only 4320 church members (believers?) of the total population (about 913,000). This means that only 0.5% of the total population are believers, and probably even less than that.

In our ministry, which consists of a church planting from scratch, we will be focused first of all on prayer and then on four key aspects, whose ultimate goal is to glorify our Lord Jesus Christ:

1) Biblical Evangelism

2) Biblical Preaching/Teaching

3) Biblical Shepherding/Counseling

4) Bible Training


If God puts it on your heart, please support prayerfully and financially this ministry and take part in God’s work in Italy. Our goal is to be supported until we have a number of people in our church plant that will be able to support me as their pastor. In fact, we want to establish a church that is financially independent in order to follow the biblical teaching (1 Tim. 5:17–18).
