Pastor and Staff
Pastor Frank Apisa
The day I put my trust in Jesus as my Savior, I told Him, "Whatever you want me to do, I'm ready to do it." Jesus said to his disciples, "The harvest is great, but the workers are few." So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields" (Matthew 9:37-38).
The Lord sent my wife, Pam and I to Turin, Italy first in 1999. He has established a thriving church there, raised up two other pastors and through them, is training and raising up other leaders. The church is well-established, and the national leaders-in-training are coached by the elders. This growth has allowed us to move out and make disciples in other cities. Jesus said, "My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work'. You know the saying, 'Four months between planting and harvest.' But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest." (John 4:34-35).
In September 2009, Pam and I moved to Milan, Italy. We feel like God has opened doors here as the church plant in Milan is beginning to bear fruit.

Co-Pastor Steve Ogle
Steve and Debi Ogle joined the outreach in Milan May 2015 to share the love of Christ. Their desire is to connect with students attending Bicocca University through English Clubs, Bible studies and one-on-one discipleship.
Their life together has been blessed to be the parents of two daughters, both married to ministers. They are proud grandparents to six grandchildren; 4 girls and 2 boys.
Steve served his country in the Navy and is an ordained pastor of 30 years. Both Steve and Debi joyfully share in serving together those the Lord brings into their lives. The verse they claimed when moving to Milan is John 15:16, "You did not choose me but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, and so that whatever you ask in My name the Father will give to you."
