3BC Pescara, Italy Partnership
Since July 2017 we have partnered with the Reformed Baptist Church in Chieti, Italy to help plant a church in Pescara, Italy. The IMB has begun partnering with the Evangelical Reformed Baptist Churches in Italy (CERBI) (12 churches in this fellowship) to plant churches. The TBC is partnering with Italy to plant churches and spread the gospel in Italy. The partnership is planned to last 6 years.
3BC has been asked to partner with Jake and Deb Goforth in Pescara, Italy. Jake and Deb have been in Italy for 2 ½ years. They have been in Naples during that time, but starting in September 2017 they will be based in Pescara to plant a church.
For 7 years the church in Chieti has been going to Pescara for street witnessing, hoping to plant a church in Pescara. They have been praying at the same time for God to open doors for this church plant to begin. They believe that Jake and Deb are answers to that prayer.
Our desire would be to have 3BC take 4-6 trips a year consisting of 6-8 people on each trip. The trips will mostly consist of being involved in doing creative events in the community to bring people in contact with the church. From time to time there may also be work trips to help work on the church building.
