Requirements

OM Italia is helping a recently planted church in Pisa. The vision for this church plant is to see a Christian Evangelical church in the heart of Pisa that puts the Gospel at the center of everything that it is and does; that lives the Gospel, through an active commitment to its ‘neighbors’ and a clear and courageous proclamation, to reach people, especially young people and students.

We are looking for people who have a heart for the church, that want to commit themselves to a church plant and to reaching out to locals. Your role will be defined according to your skills, your experience and your gifts (some examples: hosting a Bible study in your house, organizing a musical event in the university, teaching English).

The team of OM Italia is based in Pisa. As well as being part of the church plant you will be part of the OM Italia team and therefore take part in the team activities like team- and prayer meetings and serve within OM Italia’s vision and ministry.

Requirements:
- Knowledge of the Italian language or strong commitment to learn it.
- Patience and endurance when results might not always directly be visible.
- Pro-activeness: not afraid to start new activities and try-out different ways to reach and disciple people.
- Ability to work in a team: servant attitude and willingness to receive and give feedback and to collaborate on a shared vision to make Christ known.
- Experience in evangelism and/or discipleship.
- Agreeing with the church’s confession of faith and church covenant.
- A strong desire to share God’s love with people, especially through a church.
