Located in the suburb of Saint Maurice, the center has a library with Anabaptist and peace resources and guest and meeting rooms. Staff members are involved in teaching and publication ministries in many different settings, including a masters-level program in Anabaptist theology.Mennonites have been involved in ministry in the Paris area for more than 50 years, working alongside Mennonites from France and other European countries in church-planting efforts and ministries to adults and students with disabilities. The Paris Mennonite Center grew out of an earlier ministry to African students, the Foyer Grebel. Out of this ministry three Mennonite congregations have grown in the Paris area: Chatenay, Lamorlaye and Villeneuve-le-Comte.
