Thierry & Valérie committed to starting the Eglise du Rivage church-plant in Aix-les-Bains in 2013. It is now well established and the leadership team is looking to recruit somebody with a bivocational ministry to lead the next stage of the church's development. Numerous outreach initiatives have been undertaken, including the creation of a Gospel Choir that contributes to the town's rich cultural life. In addition to local ministry, Thierry is involved in the development of "holistic" projects as a Network Director with Encompass World Partners. This means that he oversees international projects in areas such as education, health, art and culture, Business as Mission, and social justice.
