Lydia and Phil Cannavo have been called to Italy and the nations to proclaim God’s Word, to prepare a people for the Lord, to display strength and take action for the advancement of God’s Kingdom.
Phil and Lydia’s ministry has reached large parts of Europe, Asia, and North America. They have proclaimed the anointed Word of God in Italy, Switzerland, France, England, and Belgium. In Asia, they have taught God’s Word in Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Taiwan. As ministers of the Gospel they have been used of the Lord extensively in the USA even in Mexico.
Their emphasis in ministry has been Italy where they founded the Italian Bible School known as "Scuola Internazionale di Ministerio" (SIDM) Which they developed with the internationally acclaimed "International School of Ministry", (ISOM).
Phil and Lydia are founders and Directors of SIDM. The curriculum of SIDM contains 160 lessons taught by world-renowned Bible teachers such as Reinhard Bonnke, Dick Eastman, Joyce Meyer, Marilyn Hickey, TL Osborn, and others. ISOM is now reaching 141 nations in 65 languages in over 10,000 Bible schools with close to 250,000 graduates.
The Cannavos are excited to be a part of ISOM with the SIDM project because it has opened many doors for the spreading of the Gospel throughout Italy. Bible School affiliation with ISOM has created the opportunities for the Cannavos to minister throughout Asia at other ISOM projects with A.L. and Joyce Gill.
Ministering with the Gills has resulted in tremendous moves of God. Every mission trip with the Gills to Asia has resulted in numerous testimonies of God’s great power and love. A.L. Gill states the “One night at The School of Acts in Malaysia, after I ministered on “Breakthrough Worship” and Phil Cannavo was leading in powerful worship, the power and glory of God filled the building. It was almost impossible to stand. One by one, those who needed healing began to take my hand and step into the power spot at the front of the room. As they did, they were slain under the power of God and received the manifestation of healing in their bodies. The power and presence of God was so awesome, that soon almost everyone had been touched and slain under the power of God.”
