We believe that one of the most important aspects to our ministry at Nuova Vita Church is to discipling and training future church planters and leaders.
We also believe it is fundamental to do this in the context of an existing Italian evangelical local church (rooted and rilevant in the context of the city) where they can find care, be encouraged to develop a clear vision and also be helped by looking for financial support.
In 2016 we launched the Internship Program at Nuova Vita.
As a pastors our passion is to prepare young Italians with theological conviction, character that is shaped by the Gospel, and opportunities of service in the local church. In addition, our hope is that there is a synergy between the interns and other members of the local church so that we can see not only individuals, but team of church planters moving to start new churches.
The Internship program has a duration of 18 months (divided in 6 trimesters) and include courses of Scripture (studying various books of the Bible and literary genres), Biblical Theology, Systematic Theology, Pastoral Theology, Church History, and Christian Character. In the Internship program courses there are three aspects that form the basis for study: knowledge, character and experience – and we think that the Gospel of Jesus Christ provides the shape and content of each of these aspects.
Our hope and prayer is that each intern will be embraced and supported by Nuova Vita Church and by our ministry partners, and that the Lord will clarify His calling on the life of each intern during the course of this program.
We would ask you to especially consider partnering with us in the support of our ministry center and internship program so that the Italian church can be equipped and empowered to step out in faith and plant churches to the glory of God!
