Elio Vannelli is a church planter, pastoring in the northeastern city of Trieste, Italy. He also serves as the Assessment Coordinator for Impatto Italia (Acts 29 Italy) as well as for South East Europe. Elio and his wife Nicoletta were saved by the grace of God after 6 years of marriage. They have two redheaded boys, Christopher and Gabriel. Their joy in Jesus and love for people is infectious. They have a burden for the Triestini people that is wonderfully evident from the moment you meet them.
