A Different Kind of Church
A Different Kind of Church is a high concept documentary film that revolves around a wild free spirited character named Vito Bitetto and the ministry he founded. Growing up in the rat race streets of Brooklyn New York, the cards were stacked against Vito from day one. He chose to surround himself with those who thought that stealing, drug use, fast cars and fine clothes were paramount. This inevitably landed him into numerous notorious prisons. Places like New York State Penitentiary, Clinton Dannemora, and Ryker’s Island became his new home. Vito now found himself sharing prison cells with the most insidious men to ever walk the planet Earth. He cried out to the Lord and asked Him to please help and he’d promise to change.
After Vito’s release, God revealed a supernatural vision to him. It uncovered the fact that through a simple thrift store a flourishing ministry called Good Samaritan would emerge. Amazingly, all this came to be within a three year period of time. Today, Vito sells donated items from the thrift store he started to raise money to feed the poor, rent homes to shelter the homeless and ex-cons and pay bills associated with the ministry. Moreover, a church service in a spruced up warehouse takes place every night.
Some of the congregation attend simply because they want to and love the ministry, but others only because the court ordered them as a stipulation of probation. Vito states, “These are the ones who resist, and the enemy uses them to divide and cause chaos in the ministry. Like many churches, the persecution comes from the inside and out, but God is large and in charge”. Today, Good Samaritan Ministry has about one hundred members, feeds over two hundred families a week and rents eight homes that shelter men, women and children. Needless to say, there’s never a dull moment.
