Our Vision is to see increasing numbers of people in France encountering God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – through the work and witness of local evangelical churches
At a national level, we therefore support the vision of the CNEF (National Council of French Evangelicals) summed up in the slogan “1 pour 10,000” – meaning one evangelical church for every 10,000 people in France. As the current population of France is over 65 million, there would need to be over 6,500 evangelical churches in France to have “1 pour 10,000”. That means there are still over 4,000 churches that need to be planted before the goal is achieved…
And while it’s exciting to know that a new evangelical church is planted somewhere in France every 10 days, unless that growth rate accelerates, it will take over 100 years to plant an additional 4,000 churches.
God has brought wonderful growth to the French evangelical church over recent decades, but there is still a huge amount to be done. Our prayers and practical support are as important as ever!
