We’re Mario and Sheila Scorziello serving as bivocational missionaries in Italy since 1989. We believe that Italy is a land of searching hearts. Our mission is to seek and reach them with the Good News of Jesus Christ, one heart at a time.

Our mission is to seek and reach Italy’s searching hearts.

Our Vision is Twofold

1. To go into Italy’s unreached areas and share the transforming and liberating Gospel of Jesus Christ.

2. To inspire fellow believers to reignite their first love for Christ and love and serve him with all their heart and soul.

What We Do


We share the Good News through volunteer work, teaching English, street and friendship evangelism, and serving others.


Through Bible teaching, preaching, mentoring, and counseling, we help believers grow in God’s grace, mercy, and the truth of his word.

Church Formation

We work at establishing churches and encouraging pastors and their congregations through visitation, preaching, prayer, and counseling.

Where We Work


Our main base is located in the central region of Abruzzo where we work most of the year.

Around Italy

We are also privileged to visit churches in various places, wherever we are invited to go.


And we have a second base in the southern region of Campania where we work during the summer.
