The Gospel Coalition: Ministry Events in Italy

Today begins the series of conferences promoted in Italy by The Gospel Coalition.

TGC began with informal conversations between D. A. Carson and Tim Keller in 2004. Today is a fellowship of evangelical churches deeply committed to renewing our faith in the gospel of Christ and to reforming our ministry practices to conform fully to the Scriptures. TGC want to generate a unified effort among all peoples—an effort that is zealous to honor Christ
and multiply his disciples, joining in a true coalition for Jesus. Such a biblically grounded and united mission is the only enduring future for the church.

Collin Hansen, author of the book: Young, Restless, Reformed: A Journalist’s Journey With the New Calvinists will be teaching in several networks of Gospel-centered church leaders across Italy.

Pastor Chris Castaldo says: "At this time in history, evangelical churches on the Italian peninsula are like a growing flame. Thanks to an unusual movement of the Spirit, they are experiencing a deeper level of gospel-centered worship and outreach. Many of these ministries, however, are fragile and needing help.Over the next two weeks, I am scheduled to visit Italy to provide evangelism training through lectures, preaching, and gatherings with pastors.
We will also have a few venues that are open to the public."

Please pray for Tuesday when Chris and Collin will spend the whole day in Bologna.
Despite the manifold challenges of ministry on the Italian peninsula, a work of gospel renewal is currently advancing in the country. After highlighting this work, Pastor Chris Castaldo invites viewers to support the movement.
