Who We Are

We are Marco and Federica (Fede) Saillen; we have been married since 2010;  we are both originally from Italy, and in February we were blessed with the birth of our first daughter Isabelle.

In May of 2016, we both graduated from Moody Theological Seminary in Chicago - Marco with a Master of Divinity with an emphasis in Spiritual Formation, and Fede with an MA in Counseling Psychology.

We have been back since June 2017 and in September we have started to serve the local Church in the unique and challenging environment of our motherland. In 2019 our son, Samuel, was born here in Bologna.


Marco is currently the ministry pastor of Nuova Vita church, and works part-time as a freelance OR Nurse. Fede is one of the leaders of Vite Trasformate ministry while she also serves the church through her counseling training.
