Trip leader: Mike Malone |

Who: You! and Great Commission Europe!

Why: We shamelessly believe that God can use the weak and broken things of this world (us) to bring redemption and radical transformation. We also desire to follow in Christ’s footsteps as He came to seek and save the lost. So we are going to Italy! We hope that through this experience God would stir each of our hearts to become more engaged with spreading God’s light and glory throughout the world.

What: A ten day mission trip focused on serving for and alongside the local church, Il Rifugio – Bicocca. The main purpose is to share the love of Christ with college students at Bicocca University in Milan, Italy. We will be reaching out to students, getting to know them, and inviting them to an english club we will be hosting.

When: Friday, May 10th – Monday, May 20th 2019

Where: Bicocca University, Milan Italy
