What is your ministry?

I do student ministry working with GBU, the Italian arm of IFES. My ministry is serving the students and local churches. I disciple and equip university students to grow in their love and knowledge of Jesus to see them witnessing boldly of Jesus to their colleagues and developing a "missional life" that will continue after their studies. I also work at and develop projects at the national level, such as training conferences for GBU student leaders and creating online strategies to encourage Christian students in their mission to share the gospel to their colleagues for Christ’s sake.

What do you hope to gain from participating?

I hope to grow in my knowledge of the biblical principles of discipleship but also in the practice, so that I will be able to apply them in my specific culture and in the "sub-culture" of university students. This will help me to plan and develop a discipleship plan with the aim of seeing students who grasp the biblical call to be disciples who make disciples of Jesus, not just during their university years but also for their entire lives. This, in the long term, in God's grace, will affect the mindset of local churches that too often, in Italy, are not focused on discipleship.

What is your leadership role or what were your past leadership roles?

I am a staff worker, so I mainly disciple students with a focus on understanding the gospel and growing in evangelism skills. I try to meet weekly with students to read the Bible and pray together; if possible, I meet with non-Christian students to introduce them to the Bible. My main role then is to train the student leaders to see them love the Lord Jesus and make disciples

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I need help to plan and develop a clear, replicable, gospel-centered discipleship plan.
