Welcome, we’re Mario and Sheila Scorziello, serving in Italy since 1989. Our ministry exists to help others realize that they can have full assurance of their eternal destiny, and experience a living vibrant relationship with Christ in the here and now.

Our Vision

OUr VISION is that all may…

KNOW Christ and the power of his resurrection.
GROW in his grace, knowledge, and truth.
And GO tell others of his great love and mercy.

Our prayer is that the Bible-based teachings on our blog may help you know Christ more, grow in his Word, and feel better equipped to reach out to world around you.

Our Missions Work

We have had the great blessing and privilege over the years to serve as pastors/teachers, and in evangelism, church planting, translating, counseling, drug rehabilitation, and in ministry to youth, children, men, women, families, and in jails.

We currently endeavor to plant churches in two regions: Campania in the south and Abruzzo in central Italy, where we also serve in the local churches preaching, teaching, mentoring, and encouraging other believers.

Mission Italia is a ministry of Open Door Church, Suffolk VA 23434 USA.

Where we Work

While we have lived all over Italy, we are now based in two small towns, near the ones shown below. Most workers concentrate on the cities and large towns, leaving the smaller towns with no clear message of Christ’s liberating power. The Lord has chosen to send us to these forgotten areas.
