France

Our initial ministry goal in France was centered upon reaching the many Southeast Asian refugees fleeing to that country in the 1960s.

C&MA ethnic churches remain strong in France; however, we now direct our labor and resources primarily toward reaching the French people

with the hope of Christ.

Europe/Middle East

Little more than one half of 1 percent of the French population professes to be evangelical. This mostly unchurched, post-Christian nation is

often referred to as the “missionary graveyard.” While progress seems, at times, painfully slow, it appears that there is a new openness to

the gospel in recent years.

Alliance workers make themselves available to God-seekers through marriage enrichment classes, Bible study, and prayer groups.

Our three international churches—in Toulouse, Paris, and Strasbourg—are experiencing growth. Gateways to French-language ministries,

these churches minister to English-language expatriates as well as to French citizens who are eager to worship in English. French-speaking

study groups are often begun in our church settings.

Outreach efforts are also geared toward reaching France’s massive immigrant population; one such ministry is among the many Chinese

who have made France their home.

A dire need in this country is for trained national leaders. Leadership courses for laypeople are conducted countrywide, yet full-time pastors

are much in demand as well.

 

The Union of Christian and Missionary Alliance Churches in France today is comprised of 23 organized churches, 2 unorganized, and 1606

inclusive members.

National Church

23 organized churches, 2 unorganized groups, 13 ordained ministers, 975 baptized members, and 1606 inclusive members.

Team Initiatives

  • Develop a local, church-based, leadership training ministry that enables church members to serve one another in Christ. Alan and
  • Carol Clason are partnering with national pastors in this effort.
  • Plant a church in Limoges, where two couples desire a French Alliance Church in their city the testimony for Christ.
