We start with serving the local church. The church is the bedrock unit that God has repeatedly used throughout the Bible from which to build. We will serve the congregation at Assemblée Chrétienne Mulhouse (ACM), using our gifts and strengths, and at the same time, we will be learning from them how ministry works in a French context. While we serve and grow, we will be mentored by the French so that we can be more effective within the culture.
Beyond just serving the church, though, we will also be working with the church to impact the city for Christ. ACM wants to be a visible part of the surrounding community. Their vision is to bring the public into the church through many different means and opportunities to build relationships that will impact lives. In addition, ACM is committed to building a bridge between the churches in the city to build greater unity and effectiveness.
The vision of ACM doesn't stop locally, though. We will be reaching the nation through raising up and training people from the local church, surrounding area, and throughout the nation to be ambassadors for Christ. We look forward to being a part of this growth process and helping equip these leaders as they go out into some very dark parts of France.
