Versailles is known for the signing of the American independence treaty in 1783. The town and its surroundings have a population of 265,000 habitants. There are only 5 small evangelical churches and less than 1% of the population is evangelical.
Founded in 2011, EPEV (Evangelical Protestant Church of Versailles) is part of the AEEI, a union of churches set up by TEAM missionaries. EPEV has grown regularly and now has 39 active members, a growth of 254% during the last 10 years, with a weekly attendance of 60 people. EPEV’s vision is “To establish a church, founded on God and his Word, which grows and multiplies”.
Our cramped meeting place, only available for rental on Sundays, leads us to consider buying a more suitable property. We are looking for a place which would have a larger room for Sunday services and which would allow us to meet freely during the week and at other times during the weekend. Such a place would allow us to hold special outreach events.
Property is very expensive in Versailles. All the places we have looked at cost from $800,000 to over $1,500,000, which is considerably more than the current church budget! We therefore need your help!
