Trieste (Tergeste) Initiative
Our team desires to see the formation of a new church in the city of Trieste – a church which exists to glorify God though worshiping Him, edifying and building up one another in the body of Christ and through reaching out in witness and service to our city and the world.
This up and coming church planting project in the city of Trieste will get underway in the Summer of 2017 when the Rogersons return to Trieste. We are currently seeking to put together a team of individuals, couples and families committed to working together to reach the unsaved of Trieste with the love of Christ and to see the formation of a church which will eventually be turned over to Italian leadership. Our vision is for a church which will be characterized by the Biblical principles of the Headship of Christ, fellowship and caring community, interaction, integration, church discipline, commitment to the local body, and each member using their gifts to benefit the body.
We envision a group of workers who will target a specific area of the city with the love of Christ to establish a new, independent, reproducing church with a vision to reach the people of the metropolitan area and the larger world around us. Some of the ways in which we hope to serve and reach out to the community include offering English classes, counseling services, youth outreach, Bible studies, hospitality, seminars or lectures on helpful topics of interest, and of course friendship. We are recruiting workers to come and join this church planting initiative who have a love for the Lord and people, who are committed to the church and who want to serve Him together with co-workers in creative ways to see a church established.
