Hi my name is Alberto, I’m 22 and come from in Sicily. I moved to Bologna for university, and gradute in July (2015) in Political Science. In October of the same year I had the opportunity to spend three months in Atlanta, at Dunwoody Baptist Church, learning from their teaching and ministries.
This fall, (September, 2016) I have started full-time in the internship at Nuova Vita Church.
On a personal note I follow the NBA and I love to read. I love to travel and of course my greatest passion is to know God more.
Practical Ministry Involvment
Internship: We meet as an internship group three times a week to study theology together. This includes every Monday and Wednesday morning along with each Tuesday evening.
Nuova Vita Uni is the Student ministry that I’m part of. We gather every Wednesday evening to study the Word together as well as look at other material such as Crazy Love by Francis Chan translated into Italian. My heart is to see young people grow in their passion for God and experience the beauty of an intimate relationship with our Creator. Students live in a very turbulent stage of life so it’s my desire to guide them to the amazing peace that we can only find in God.
I am also greatly involved in evangelism in this ministry and so I hope to be more present on the campus to reach out to more students, many of whom have never heard the gospel of grace.
Multivitamine is the Sunday morning kids’ class. I help as an assistant for the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade class. During the lessons, we use stories of the great people of the Bible to show God’s character and His great love for them. However, sometimes I feel like if I am the kid and they are the teachers.
Vite Trasformate is the ministry to reach out the women whom are under the yoke of sex trafficking and prostitution. About 80% of them come from Nigeria with the promise to find a better life. Two times a month we have an outreach and I personally contribute as driver, safeguarding the protection of those women who are serving on the street.
- Faith in God. That I may seek His will first and submit to it daily.
- I could meet more students and especially the ones God has sent here in Bologna to hear the Gospel.
- More knowledge of the Word that can draw me to love Jesus more.
- Manage time well and not waste it.
- Be more courageous and kill anxiety and pride in my life.
