FRANCE – TEAM
Paul and Karan have been working with TEAM in France since 1978 in church-planting ministries. They have planted churches in the southern suburbs of Paris, northwestern suburbs of Lyon, and more recently, in the Alps region around Albertville. In 2010, they moved to the city of Pontcharra, strategically located at the junction of the valleys, major highways, and railways that link the cities of Albertville, Chambery, and Grenoble. At that time there was no gospel witness for the 80,000+ people living in the greater Pontcharra area. Since 2010, Paul and Karan have started a new church in conjunction with a French church and the Christian Conference Center near Grenoble. They also want to develop a leadership-training program for future workers in conjunction with France Mission – a French denomination of churches that partners with TEAM.
Along with this church-planting ministry, Paul serves on the TEAM France Ministry Area Leadership Team (MALT), the board of France Mission, and the board of the language school in Albertville.
