An overview of various projects and ministry needs of the SMG in which you can invest to further the growth of the Lord's work in Europe & beyond.
This is our main fund. All of the offerings given to Serenissima Ministries in Italy go through this fund unless specifically designated toward another fund. Give to this fund if you would simply like to say, "Apply this money where you guys feel you need it the most."
Every growing ministry has a need for resources and tools as their operational expenses grow alongside of their churches. Money donated to this project will support a wide-range of church planting activities which include the discipleship of leaders to plant churches, the establishment of Gospel communities in unreached areas, and ministry expenses associated with new church plants (facilities, materials, computers, outreach, mercies, and more).Support This Project
Over the last 4 years, SMG has developed out a successful Life laboratory project consisting of a custom-made mobile classroom to train and certify up to 4 people at a time in MIG and TIG welding & soldering. A number of the men who have been certified now have contracted employment. This first LifeLab was a successful test and now we are preparing another LifeLab of a full-grade, industrial kitchen for culinary certification. Each lab costs around €25k to produce.Support This Project
Beginning in 2021, SMG established a fund to enable smaller or newer church plants to be able to borrow needed liquidity for the purpose of the acquisition or renovation of ministry centers for greater growth capacity. Most new ministries are unable to seek a loan or mortgage from a bank. With this fund, SMG is able to fill that gap, enable ministries to advance in their work, and do it all at an interest-free, Kingdom rate. The fund began with 60k euros and we hope to raise up to 500k to simultaneously assist multiple smaller but high-quality ministries.Support This Project
In Autumn of 2020, Serenissima Ministries as part of its renovation project began construction on an industrial-grade kitchen to open another LifeLab for the culinary sector. The cost of this LifeLab is around 25k euros. Together with the professional chefs in the ministry, our desire is to create a certified course in food safety & preparation involving other local restaurants to equip locals & refugees who enjoy cooking and would like to enter this sector for work.Invest in the Kitchen LifeLab

Pastor Andi Dina in Tirana has shared with us that they really need simple, accessible resources to explain Gospel truth to the Albanian people. As of January 2021, our book on conversations about true faith called The Second Birth is getting ready to be typeset and published in Albanian. Our first printing will run around €1000 and give Albanian churches a new resource to share the Gospel. Please consider helping us to print this resource.Invest in The Second Birth in Albanian
