Dritto al Cuore

Dritto al Cuore, is a TV program, produced by Sondra Sottile since 2007, for CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) and hosted by Gaetano Sottile.

Ron Jones, nominated twice for the Emmy Awards, composes the sound tracks.

The goal of the program is to share the faith in  Christian values by influential people, who tell their experiences of life. In each episode there are two interviews, supported by movies of the guests, who tell their own story.

Book of Hope
The Book of Hope (BOH) publication combines the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to tell the life story of Jesus Christ in a magazine format. The magazine reads in chronological order and features study questions that direct the reader back into the Word. There are also sections throughout the magazine that deal with several different issues that youth deals with such as self-esteem, love, sex, friendships, facing the future, and others. All of these direct students to a part of the magazine that presents the plan of salvation so that youth knows how to accept Christ as their personal Savior.
Women for Christ
Women for Christ is the women's ministry founded by Sondra Sottile in 1993. The vision of Women for Christ is to encourage, mobilize and equip Italian women from different denominations, in order to have an effective role in the fulfillment of the Great Commission.

The goal of this ministry is to put into the hands of the Italian women practical tools to make them able to evangelize family, friend and neighbors, through the organization of large national conferences in cooperation with the local churches.


Two thousand years ago a man did a call…a call that started a movement…a movement that started with few leaders involved in teaching to other leaders…leaders today committed to equip men and women to bring back the world to that Man…
