ATR is a network that connects established and developing evangelical ministries in Italy who are burdened by the injustice of commercial sexual exploitation and committed to making an impact to the glory of God.
There are as many as 120,000 commercially sexually exploited individuals in Italy today. In fact, Italy is reported to have the largest number of victims in all of Europe. They had dreams and aspirations for their lives, just like you and I, but in pursuit of those dreams, they were forced, coerced, or tricked into a life that became a nightmare.
We are a team dedicated to reaching all sectors of society with the Gospel message in the city of Bologna, a modern and culturally rich city of 500,000 people with the oldest university in Europe, started in 1056. We are involved in student evangelism, reaching young professional people with the Gospel, leadership development, and discipleship. TEAM has started two evangelical churches in Bologna, the New Life Church and the New Hope Church.
Our big dream is to see God’s name revered, His Kingdom come and His will be done in the city of Faenza as it is in Heaven (Matt. 6:10). We desire to see the Kingdom of God expand throughout the city, the region, the nation and from Italy to other people groups around the world.
Forlì is a city of nearly 120,000 people that lies on an ancient Roman road constructed over 100 years before the birth of Christ connecting the city of Milan in the northwest with the Adriatic Sea just 30 kilometres further down the road. It is best known as the city of Benito Mussolini, who was born in a nearby town.
Imola is a small provincial town of 70000 inhabitants. There is a great need to spread the good news of Christ in all facets of this community. From the schools to the factories, we are involved in sharing God’s love towards its people.
Il Faro (The Lighthouse) is seeking to start gospel communities on mission in the tri-cities of Mestre, Marghera and Venice. These communities are gospel-centered, community-shaped, and mission-focused groups of believers spreading the light and knowledge of the glory of God to the people with whom they live, work, study and play.
Tergeste, meaning “market town”, is a new ministry in which we are seeking to plant a church which enters into the marketplace of ideas to bring the transforming truth of Christ to the hearts of those who have not yet accepted Him. Trieste, a beautiful port city of about 210,000 people, is considered to be a crossroads of cultures due to her rich cultural and political history and her geographical location along the Northeastern border of Italy.
Trieste is a city of 210,000 inhabitants and the capital of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Italy. It is a major port city with significant international commerce and the home of an important Italian university. It is our desire to see God establish a viable, Biblically sound, interdependent and reproducing Italian church in this key strategic city.
Our desire is to see many Umbertidesi come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and as this takes place, that they would be vibrant witnesses for Christ and faithful members of the emerging local church. We are actively seeking to set in the mind and heart of all a conscious choice to see other churches established in the immediate area and far beyond.
