The National Council of French Evangelicals (CNEF) estimates that the best program, gimmick, outreach, or strategy for working with God in France is, in effect, to BE and BUILD the BODY OF CHRIST in France. TEAM wholeheartedly agrees with this… so much so that we’ve made it our purpose statement.
A big issue that is currently troubling the Church planting strategists is that there is a big shortage of local church leaders in France. France needs church leaders. Even more, France needs leaders who can make other leaders. Are you experienced in planting and/or pastoring a church? Are you a teacher/modeler at heart? There is a huge opportunity for you at the moment in France.
