Welcome, we are the Scorziellos

Reaching the seeking hearts of Italy.

Our Vision

Our vision is to reach the seeking hearts of Italy. Our goal is to spread the Gospel so that the people of Italy have an opportunity to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, to have full assurance of their eternal destiny, and to experience a living vibrant relationship with Christ in the here and now.

What We Do


We endeavor to share the Good News through street and friendship evangelism, teaching English, making friends, 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 congregations and pastors through visitation, preaching, prayer, and counseling.

Where We Work


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


We also have a second summer base in this southern region.
