We have been in France since just after WWII with a focus on evangelism and church planting. This work has been primarily in the North, Pas-de-Calais and Ile de Paris regions, but more recently has been established in Alsace and Normandy with links to Marseille.
We have work amongst the majority French in Béthune, Lille, Roubaix and Lisieux. We have other work that is more focused on North Africans in Mulhouse, Roubaix, Strasbourg with affiliate work in Marseille. We have work in international English-speaking churches with outreach to French in Versailles and Strasbourg.
Some of our key emphases are:
- Church planting in urban contexts
- Children and youth ministries: urban outreach, music & contemporary communications
- Leadership formation
- Artistic faith expressions
- Mobilization of the French churches for near-neighbor cross-cultural mission.
