Welcome to our blog! If you browse by chance in this space, I introduce who we are: my name is Gian Luca Derudas (GL for friends), I’m happy married with Nella and father of two girls Claudia (17) and Gulia (12). We are born and raised in beautiful Sardinia, but we are living in Bologna for almost 9 years where I am a pastor in the New Life Evangelical Church and president of a young publishing house called Sophos.
We are part of Impact (Acts29 Italy) embracing the vision and commitment to church building and I am also part of the Council of Italian Ministries, a network of missionaries in Italy.
Several years ago the light of the Gospel illuminated my life and my wife and for almost 20 years we serve the Lord together, with the passion of proclaming the Gospel for make mature disciples of Jesus Christ and planting churches for the glory of God.
As the Apostle Paul wrote:
“For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” (2Co 4: 5-6)
In this blog we want to share stories, glimpses of life, thoughts that reflect how the light of the Gospel is illuminating other lives beyond our. And we want to sharing our projects through which we want to be able to reflect – ourselves – the light of Christ, with our lives.
