Before Teresa and I came to Hillcrest Church, we spent many years of our lives focusing on ministry to Europe in general and France in particular. Recently, we were privileged to welcome Pastor Michel Balverde and his son, Samuel, to Dallas for a few days and were overjoyed to hear the good news of how God is moving in that nation. The Lord has given them specific and innovative vision on how to reach a new generation of French young people through outreaches, conferences, and all forms of media, especially the internet.
To find out more, check out their primary website: France Advance. It includes a couple of English language videos produced by French young people: a newscast style video talking about the spiritual needs of France and a short feature film about the spiritual oppression French Christians and their leaders must overcome. There is also a page giving statistics about the spiritual need of the country.
Their Connaître Dieu (French language) and Looking for God (English language) website (also available in German, Dutch, and Chinese) has over four hundred people per day registering first-time decisions for Christ! Click here to see who is logged on right now and from which countries in the world.
The affiliated Top Chrétien Christian web portal has welcomed over 10 million unique visitors in the last five years. It is a great way to brush up on your French and to get a feel for what God is doing in France!
