Italy : Youth & Young Adult Ministry/Church Planter (Trieste - Tergeste)


Do you have a passion to see young people walking with and serving the Lord? Are you a good listener? An encourager? Able to build bridges with youth and connect around fun, everyday life and the deep issues? Are you gifted in evangelism? Discipleship? If so, we have a huge need for you in Trieste, a beautiful Italian city on the Adriatic Sea. 

Italian youth and young adults are giving in to great despair as they deal with staggering unemployment rates and much uncertainty about the future. This affects both those dealing with failure in landing a job and those still in school who see the dimming possibilities they will face. They need Hope! The youth in Trieste are turning more and more to drugs and alcohol to dull their boredom and hopelessness. There is a wide open door for ministry!

  • Lead discussion groups and Bible studies.
