This month, we are featuring Agape Mosaique’s REFUGEE Project
Since 2009, Agapé Mosaïque has spread the good news of faith in Jesus Christ in France in partnership with movements and churches that are of the Evangelical-Protestant confession and more simply, those who call themselves disciples of Christ.
Vision: The vision of Agapé Mosaïque is to give every Muslim in France and in Europe the opportunity to know Jesus Christ.
Mission: Agapé Mosaïque aims to create and support a self-replicating evangelism and discipleship movement focused on Muslims in Europe.
The Refugee Project
Thousands of Muslim refugees are coming to France mainly from Iraq and Syria. After having lived through difficult situations to escape hunger, war, and other dangerous circumstances; they are arriving hungry and discouraged. The highest concentration of refugees can be found in the larger cities – mostly Paris, Lille, Toulouse, and Lyon.
Through its network and strategic relationships, Agape Mosaïque is one of the best-positioned ministries in France to assist in this pressing matter.
We are seeking to raise $185,000 (162.000 €) in order to provide material and spiritual assistance to these groups. We believe this is a unique opportunity to show love and charity in a concrete way and reach thousands with the Gospel.
THE NEED AND THE PLAN
Provide spiritual and material assistance to refugees coming to France by:
– Distributing New Testaments (in Arabic), the Jesus Film, books for children, and other Christian literature.
– Host meals, which will be discovery Bible studies.
– Provide tents, blankets, first aid kits, and non-perishable food items.
– Host outreach events

This month, we are featuring Radio Reveil! www.paroles.fr (in French).
Since 1949, Radio Reveil has produced turnkey radio programming that they offer to Christian and, more importantly, secular radio stations.
Vision: To spread the Gospel through commercial radio stations in the French-Speaking world.
Mission: Reach the unreached with the message of the Gospel. To touch people who are looking for a way of living and for spirituality. To broadcast on radio stations where there is not any Christian content. Our objective is to bring Christian faith content in a secular world in the French-Speaking world.
History: Radio Réveil started in 1949 and was officially registered in 1953 in Switzerland. Then a second office was opened in France where a lot of activities were made with the most important French radio stations like RTL and the NRJ Group. Radio Réveil has always been a Christian radio programs producer. Actually, Radio Réveil has never had its own Air. From the beginning, the strategy of Radio Réveil has always been to leave its own programs at disposal to a maximum French-Speaking radio stations. From the beginning, Radio Réveil bought Air Time on Europe 1 or RMC for example in order to be able to broadcast its radio programs. The goal and the mission of Radio Réveil have been to spread the Gospel through mass media since 1949. From its beginning Radio Réveil has concentrated its actions in Europe and mainly in France and Switzerland. But step-by-step, the vision of Radio Réveil has included the whole French-Speaking part of the world.

National Council of Evangelicals of France
www.lecnef.org (in French)
The CNEF is a common platform and a foundation to reinforce relationships and connections between its members. One of its primary purposes is to express the unity given by Jesus Christ at a national, regional, or local level. It promotes and encourages diverse initiatives – especially around the themes of prayer, evangelism, training, support, and a Christian testimony in the world.
Through these focus areas, the CNEF aims to educate French society about the identity of Evangelicals, support their work in society, and be the voice for Evangelical Protestants around current events or other occasions where it may be helpful to correct misconceptions. They have a wide variety of communication tools which can be found here: http://lecnef.org/outils-de-communication
The CNEF began in 2001 when the French Evangelical Alliance and the French Evangelical Federation invited the majority of Evangelical denominations to Nogent-sur-Marne to meet. Two years later, the CNEF became a place of exchanges, fellowship, and prayer – later incorporating in 2010 as an official French association. Read more on their history here: http://lecnef.org/lecnef/histoire
While the CNEF is engaged in many different activities, one of the most important is church planting. Recognizing that there was only one Evangelical church for every 32,000 inhabitants, the CNEF set a collective goal to achieve one church for every 10,000 Frenchmen. Practically, this means that no one has to drive more than one hour to attend a church where they will hear about Jesus.
Impact France has been a partner with the CNEF for many years and was privileged to have all four of our board members present at the official incorporation ceremony in 2010. Impact France has facilitated grants to the CNEF for the websites 1pour10000.fr and disciples.fr.
