Shawn and Laura Green (Lucas, Emmanuel, Matteo, Isabella)
Serving in: Termoli, Italy
Program name: transForm (long-term)
- Serving since:
Shawn and Laura and their children and their three boys, Lucas, Emmanual, Matteo, and Isabella serve with a church-planting team in Termoli, assisting with worship and discipleship, reaching out through home Bible studies, and developing relationships to expand the work into new areas.
The Greens see their mission “to be examples of redemption and relationship with Jesus Christ, in a culturally relevant way. Our vision is to see the Italian people engage in a meaningful relationship with Christ, and to restore the hope of the gospel that has been lost throughout the generations, not only for them, but for those who will follow.”
Shawn and Laura also see their role as “connectors” with believers in Sicily where they served under the tranSend program several years ago. Fostering those relationships helps shorten the gap between Sicily and the Bari/Puglia-Molisse regions. The Greens’ gifts of worship, outreach and hospitality are opening new doors for the gospel in Italy.
