Church planting, sheltered workshops, African student ministry, an
Anabaptist research center—what do these initiatives have in common?
They are the result of French and North American Mennonite bodies
combining their modest resources for a common witness in postwar France.
Allen Koop, in his study of late twentieth-century mission in the
country, claims that “no other missionary project . . . fostered
cooperation as close and as productive as that carried out by French and
North American Mennonites. No other mission succeeded in combining
evangelism and church planting with significant social work to the same
degree.” The story recounted here celebrates the past and challenges
God’s people to faithfulness in the future.
