We’re the Scorziellos

Mario and Sheila, an ordinary couple serving an extraordinary God in Italy since 1989. With a vision for reaching out to the searching hearts of Italy and for inspiring believers to reignite their first love for Christ.

Our 31 years of service here. →


To live out the love of Jesus among the people of Italy and share the Good News of his life-giving and transformational love and power.

And to inspire believers to rekindle their first love for Christ into a living vibrant relationship. To put him first in all they do and live for him in every way, realizing that they were created for a greater and higher purpose.



We endeavor to share the Good News by making friends, 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.
