Do you have knowledge of the Scriptures and a personal walk with God? Do you want to come alongside other believers to listen, encourage, and guide them? Do you have a passion for leading Christians in Bible study? Then come to France! There is an abundance of opportunities for discipleship through local churches and on an individual basis. Churches often have a vision for discipleship, but a lack of workers to help carry out that vision.
You will find an atheistic, secular culture in France, with less than one percent of the population being born-again believers. Although the number of Christians may be small, it has grown ten-fold in the last 50 years. With new believers, comes the need for more workers, more mature Christians who are trained in understanding, explaining and living the Word of God. Through Bible study and conversations about Christian life, you can follow the great commission: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations… teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Mt. 28:19-20).
Discipleship has a multiplying effect. As Christians are taught and grow in the Lord, they are then able to share what they’ve learned with others. In time, they will contribute to church leadership and church development. This is an exciting season of growth, a great time to join the ABWE team in France and follow God’s leading to disciple believers!
