Join Our Team

We are looking for more workers in several parts of Italy to reach out to the unreached who have come to Europe. Is God calling you to do this work? Connect with us to learn more about how you could work with our team.

The Search Party Team in Rome has established a center in the downtown area of Rome called Centro Agape. We are recruiting workers to work in Centro Agape to work as part of the Search Party team.

Our Vision

Centro Agape takes its name from the Greek word “Agape” meaning the committed and covenant love of God for his people. We are driven by Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians 5:14-15 knowing that the Lord Jesus has died for all so that we might not live for ourselves but for him in all we do.

Centro Agape works to reach the various populations of immigrants and Italians in Rome through disciple-making, church planting, Italian and English language courses and community connecting events that seek to use the gifts of the local churches with whom we partner.

Our church “Agape Internazionale” is connected with the Bridge house church network in New York City. Search Party has a daily working relationship with the International Project Rome team and ministry goals and positions are shared between the two ministry groups. We have started our own network of simple church leaders in Rome with the goal of starting at least one new church in every municipality of the city.

Centro Agape is also committed to training young adults and churches in the practice of mission and church planting. Through our partnership with local Italian churches and American churches and universities we seek to build up new missional leaders and missionaries to reach the continent of Europe and the world going forward. We do this through hosting short-term missional training weeks and through our summer and 9 month internship programs.
