Our Staff

Our staff of ten workers, full time or part time here and abroad, is delighted to represent you in reaching out to feed the “hungry giant.” We’ll be happy to answer your questions and share ways that you can impact the French-speaking world with God’s word without even leaving your home – unless you want to join a work team in another country.
