ECM is working in different ways to plant loving communities in different parts of the country, which can spread the message of the Gospel in their surroundings. As well as planting churches through personal contacts and relationships, the mission is also actively using other media, for example art and Internet, to get people interested in the gospel.

Italy is a country with many different appearances. There are many churches and a wealth of religious symbolism, but on the other hand there is much occultism and many have a very unbiblical lifestyle. A truly biblical message is scarce in many parts of this country.

ECM hopes that the number of Christians, who want to cooperate in the mission, will grow, so that the parts of the country where the Gospel has not been heard will be enlightened by the warmth and love of Gods people.
