Why: To serve and encourage the Irwins in their ministry. To provide local prayer support and possibly hand out invites about the launch of Eglise de la Rive Droite.
Meet the Team
With less than 2% committed followers of Jesus in France, most people in France do not even know a genuine believer. Grace missionaries, Doug and Emilee Irwin, along with their French co-leaders, have a bold vision to start a new French-speaking church, near a massive metro station near the center of Paris. They launch in January 2023 and have asked a team from Grace to come and pray over all aspects of this effort. We are that prayer team. Thank you for joining with us prayerfully and financially.
