Born in Milan, Italy, and raised in Ferrara, Italy, Paolo is married to the former Cindy Inman, daughter of the late Clifton and Pauline Inman. Clifton was a well-known preacher of the Gospel for 50 years in the Ohio Valley. Paolo and Cindy have one son, Marco. Paolo's biblical education and training have come from various courses of study in Italy and the United States, and from working with his father, the late Gilberto (who preached the Gospel for 50 years in Italy) and other missionaries in Italy. He preached full-time for various congregations in Italy from 1983 to 2006, at which time he and Cindy decided to move to the United States. Paolo began working with the Bridge Street congregation in New Martinsville, WV on June 4, 2007. In addition to pulpit preaching and personal evangelism, Paolo has also prepared and recorded radio programs, participated in public debates, directed Bible camps for children and teenagers, worked (in Italy) with campaign groups from the United States, and participated in numerous other evangelistic activities. He also has been co-editor for various monthly papers, published both on paper and on the Internet, and has maintained two web sites.
