Our Purpose and Inspiration

Located in Northwest Italy, Menorah Mission School is an evangelism training center for lay people. Through theoretical classes and practical activities, our 9 month course is designed to equip you with biblical and health knowledge.

Menorah Mission School has been founded by a group of Seventh-day Adventists who attended other mission training programs in past years. Our experiences sparked in us the desire to establish a mission school to inspire and train lay people to be effective workers for God.

Menorah Mission School fully supports the spiritual mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as a self-supporting ministry, not controlled by or legally affiliated to it.

It is our aim that our graduates become resources for existing ministries or instrumental in starting new ones helping to prepare people for Christ’s second coming.

Our Mission Statement

Kindle the flame. Keep it burning. Light up the world.

Our Logo

Our logo has been designed with two components, a Menorah and a Bible. Menorah is the Hebrew word for the seven-branched candlestick which was located in the earthly sanctuary the Lord asked the Israelites to build (see Exodus 25:31). It was the source of light in the sanctuary.

The school’s name is biblically symbolic. The theme of light runs throughout the Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation. The Word of God itself is compared to a lamp and a light (see Psalm 119:105).

In Zechariah 4, the Menorah is a symbol of God's people doing His work in the power of the Holy Spirit, represented by the oil feeding the seven lamps. Jesus is the Light of the world and we can be lights as we reflect His character. He said to His disciples: “You are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14, NKJV). For this purpose the church was established.

The world is in need of seeing the true picture of God's character portrayed in the life and message of Christ's disciples.
The knowledge of His glory will fill the earth as it is prophesied in the book of Revelation: “After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory” (Revelation 18:1, NKJV).

It is our privilege and opportunity to play a part in God's great plan of redemption for humanity: “With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world” (“Education”, page 271).
