Meet our Pastors

Donato and Annelies live in Lugano, Switzerland, where they pastor Living Word Christian Center. Serving God in the ministry for more than 35 years, Donato has had the honor of working in different areas of leadership for several International organizations such as Teen Challenge and Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International, training disciples and equipping their audiences to use the power of the Kingdom of God around them. Donato is graduated from Continental Theological Seminary, in Brussels, Belgium

After faithfully and loyally serving the Lord as pastors in several churches in the Brussels area in Belgium, Donato answered God’s call to the field ministry, travelling from church to church, and later, he planted Living Word.

In addition to his pastoral ministry, Donato travels internationally on four continents, preaching tirelessly the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. With other ministers he regularly organizes healing conferences in several countries.

Internationally appreciated, Donato teaches with lots of clarity and humor, making simple complex concepts; adapting himself to his many different king of audiences. Donato is at ease in different types of settings, from church meetings; from discipleship centers to Ministry training schools, all the way to academic environments.

He is know for being a preacher of righteousness, bringing a timely and timeless Word; the right message to the right people at the right time; a “exactly what we needed to hear” type of message. Even when teaching, Donato makes sure to be connected with God in order to bring revelations and speaking in people’s hearts. Together with Annelies, they have three children, all actively committed in the church and the Lord’s service.
