Where does mission start?

Bringing Church Home

Where does mission start?

The Amore Project builds family-like communities for evangelism and helps married couples:

  • Reimagine home as the “first church” and a launching place for joining God’s mission
  • Trains married couples to embrace their marriage as a sign of the gospel and a calling to minister among those who are far from God.
  • Amore Communities create space for all people to experience and celebrate God’s love

The Amore Project started in Italy by Msgr. Renzo Bonetti and, through the Famiglia Dono Grande Foundation, has helped create hundreds of Communities of Families for Evangelization (Amore Communities) in Italy and in other parts of Europe. In 2013, the project began taking shape in the United States through the vision and generosity of Truro Anglican Church in Fairfax, Virginia and Fresh Expressions US. The project helps strengthen marriages, proclaims God’s spousal love for every person and forms spiritual families who live as agents of Jesus’s self-giving love in their neighborhoods and communities.

“The smallest family in the world can build the family of God. It need not be the best family, they just need to open their hearts to God. We cannot evangelize without the family.”
