General Responsibilities

I (Hillary) moved to Sicily in 2013. I am a natural networker and love to put my gift of hospitality to use. I often host events in my home as a way of building deeper relationships while connecting friends to one another. I teach private English lessons and pre-COVID, taught a free adult English course in my community. I am ever on the lookout for how I can join Jesus in what He is up to here in this corner of Italy. I recognize the need within this culture to encourage others to read, understand and apply God’s Word to our lives, to do so within the context of community and to emphasize Jesus is not a religion but a relationship, one that is established entirely by grace alone.
Future teammates will be encouraged to use their passions, experiences, training and giftings in creative ways to connect with and minister to those in the community.

I believe God has called me to love on and serve the people of Sicily. I am praying others will join me soon in loving on this community with the hope that in our midst, we will see Jesus heal hearts and relationships that are broken, set free those who are captive, impart hope to those who have none and restore the sight of the spiritually blind. We desire to see God’s Kingdom breaking into the here and now and yearn for a great revival to take place here in Italy. We are looking for those who will join us in seeking “Shalom” both here in this area and across the country.

Funding

The salary and ministry expenses of this position are funded through personal support raising. Self-employed or bi-vocational teammates are also welcome. Applicants will be asked to go through the Communitas Missionary Candidate Process including fundraising if needed and orientation prior to starting the position. A funding plan for this position will be provided during the deputation process.

Belief and Commitment

All staff need to maintain a strong commitment to our:
Statement of Faith
Statement on Gender Equality
Statement on Racial Equity

“I love that Communitas emphasizes loving others incarnationally, mission as a lifestyle, authentic relationships, maintaining a “posture of learning,” community service and on-going creativity.”
