Craig and Silvana Quam

Serving in Montebelluna, Italy Silvana and I arrived in Montebelluna Italy in the fall of 1996 with our 1 yr old daughter abigail to plant the first Calvary Chapel in Italy and also the first Protestant church ever in that city. In the beginning their were only 4 people coming on Sundays but God faithfully began to add to our number and in the Summer of 1997 we were able with great joy to baptize the first new believers who had come to Christ.

The church continued to grow and in the Summer of 2004 a new Church plant began in the city of Treviso which is about 15 miles south of Montebelluna. In 2005 we had the joy of beginning a new work in the Dolomite Mountains 25 miles north of Montebelluna which is now Calvary Chapel Feltre. In 2007 we started a bible study in the city of Padua which is an hour south of Montebelluna. which now is the Calvary Chapel Padua. In 2008 God allowed us to start an affiliate campus of CCBC Murrieta and in 2010 we began classes in Italian and a bi-lingual campus.

In 2012 Pastor Chuck Smith asked Craig to be one of the regional pastors for western Europe and since that time one of his ministries has been to visit and encourage young church planters Italy and Western Europe. In 2019 we were able to hand over the church in Feltre to another pastor and Lord willing we will be starting in 2020 a new Intern/Missionary train program along side the normal Bible college.
