Why we are here
We came to Italy in 2003 with a vision of training and caring for workers who desire to participate in the great commission. God continues to lead us and to unfold the ministry he has placed on our hearts. The vision we have is to provide training, practical experience and theoretical teaching for people who feel called to go. i6:8 was founded in 2004 and has been the channel through which we are able to fulfill the great commission. Our vision is to see peoples, communities and nations transformed by Christ, through the global movements of Kingdom disciples.
