God is sovereignly bringing immigrants, refugees and international students from unreached people groups right to us in the “Eternal City” — Rome, Italy. This service trip is an opportunity to impact lives from a great number of different people groups in one of the world’s most beautiful, historic and strategic cities!
International Project’s Rome Winter Service Trip is one of the most challenging, stretching and exciting short- term experiences available. Our 3-week evangelism and church-planting experience for college students offers you the opportunity to live and serve among unreached people group communities and refugees in Rome. We are looking for 10-12 individuals to join us who are ready for challenge, adventure and growth.
