[As DELTA is gearing up for Festival Casoria 2015, we are excited to promote an event put on by a local church to help support the work of the Casoria and Arzano churches. The proceeds from the event will go directly to the churches in Naples to help fund Festival Casoria 2015 and the new church building for the Arzano congregation. You can attend in person if you are in the Portland area or join the live stream.]

This first-of-its-kind webcast will serve as an opportunity for viewers to hear about the current work of Pastor Doug Valenzuela, WorldVenture missionary to Naples, Italy. Hosted by Brian Heerwagen, CEO of DELTA Ministries, the focus of the webcast will be to draw awareness to the opportunity for churches and individuals to partner with the church in Naples to raise $400,000.00 by April 30, 2015. Funds will be used to purchase a church building which recently became available at the end of 2014. In addition, a portion of the proceeds of the webcast will help the church produce their biennial evangelistic festival, used to share the gospel message with the people of Naples.
The webcast begins at 7pm and will be a high-energy variety show, including live music from the band Samsel and the Skirt, Italian cooking demonstrations, fun games and contests, videos, live call-ins from supporters, and testimonies of those impacted by the work in Naples. Throughout the evening the audience will be kept up-to-date on the fundraising efforts for the new church building, with the hopes of celebration before the webcast sign-off at 8:30pm (PST).

What an amazing opportunity God has given us to share the gospel in Napoli. This new church for the city of Arzano-Melito will become a true lighthouse in one of darkest areas of all of Napoli. I’m sure you’ll want take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change hearts for all of eternity.
A little about us: Since 1978, Doug and Dee Valenzuela have served with
WorldVenture in Napoli, Italy. Currently, they are involved in a number of ministries, including an ever expanding church planting ministry that now has two vibrant growing congregations in two very difficult areas of Napoli.
These churches reach out to so many different types of people, from hard-core drug addicts, to former Mafia-type gang members, to many university students and so many families living in a very difficult and often-times dangerous city.
Yet in spite of it all, the churches are thriving and continue to be a major lighthouse in this very complicated and crowded city.
