- Evangelism and church planting
Immigrants, especially Africans, are increasingly joining Italians and other European members of Waldensian churches in Italy’s major cities, resulting in increasingly vibrant ministries. Unfortunately, immigrants also face discrimination and marginalization, magnified by recently passed laws that deny basic rights to immigrants. The Waldensian Church has partnered with four Italian and North American groups—the RCA, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the American Waldensian Society, and the Federation of Protestant Churches in Italy—to form a partnership called Being Church Together (BCT). Paolo Naso serves as national coordinator of BCT. He uses his skills and experience in immigration and communication to bring immigrants into Italy's Waldensian and Methodist churches. Paolo serves in partnership with the Union of Methodist and Waldensian Churches.
